A statement …

Currently, my work is less about myself and my personal experiences and more focusing on exploring things that interest and concern me. As a new MFA Candidate, I am taking this time to explore new materials, subjects and processes to, in many ways, evolve my work from what it was. My goal is now moving towards an examination of larger ideas that offer a place for contemplation. I want to impel conversations around issues within my community that concern me. More importantly, I want to rouse these conversations so it may begin to aid in the movement of correction; by that I mean breaking the cycle of these stigmas that has been circulating through our communities, to the next generation and ever after.
