My work speaks to the companionship I have with the metaphysical and material worlds. The concepts of being human and holy, and who or when someone gets to be identified under these terms intrigues me. I always envision holiness when creating, whether I am painting or making a wearable object, in my head they’re already euphoric and ethereal and I am simply creating their symbolic companion. The elements I use are mostly temporal and changing, like we appear to be on earth, but I am consistently expanding the overall imagery to be somewhat out of reach or to be from another land. In that way I am reaching to close the gap a little and remind others that there is more.
