My most recent series are narratives mirroring my current reality. In 2019 I broke my spine and suffered a spinal cord injury and subsequent reconstructive surgery. The resulting change in my ability has greatly impacted the focus of my work.
Current work explores narratives of resilience, fracture, and renewal. Constructed with found objects, and the imagery of personal histories, the mediums are assembled around an internal impulse and manifest into the tactile realm. My work is a gut reaction around the divergence of American dominant culture family paradigms, and the real working class experience.
