I started making art as a way to “speak up” in a big, loud family – my artwork became my voice. My current work deals with the human figure. In a way, each piece is a self-portrait, allowing viewers to see into my world as an artist and a person. I create pieces with wire, clay, and masking tape wondering how much I can leave out and still present a piece recognized as a human figure. By leaving parts missing and incomplete, I allow the viewer to see my process. The exposed areas, like little windows into my character, are just as important as the parts that are represented.
