Creating has always been my means to explore, feel, express, question, heal, and get to know myself. In times of darkness, in states of seeking light, I find myself making art. When I create in this way, I am both creator and subject, on the inside and outside. Creating becomes a space I use to delve into, experience, understand and define my mental state. Creating becomes a way into the personal, the psychological and the experience of being human. In this space I seek to understand myself and others. The work, the creativity, is merely a consequence of the my urge to make sense of things. 

In those moments, where my mind is racing, my attention span wavering and where making work becomes merely an afterthought, the results are these momentary bursts of movements.

 

Minuscule moments that carry momentary monumental emotion.
