My art work in fiber-based sculpture comes from a familial historical standpoint of my personal life, the human condition, and spiritual renewal. The sculptures serve as personal visual language that speaks on levels that are ancient as well as currently theoretical.

The materials I chose to work with are associated with cultural memories that transform ‘space’ without altering its integrity with thought-provoking installations that deal with the notion of loss of ‘self’ though inevitable change.
