      As an interdisciplinary artist and educator, my work surveys identity through a cultural and gender lens. I work within photography, video and performance art mediums. Viewers can experience self-portraiture images of representation from a distinctive and personal place.  Either by constructing narratives or quasi-documentaries, I aim to create work that evokes a conversation about cultural  and gender differences. 


     My work purposefully sets up a framework for conversations dealing with race, gender, class and sexuality.  I look at how socialization and statuses impact our intra/ inter personal experiences. This allows a space for engagers to deconstruct or break-down misunderstandings or discomfort with identities.  By posing open ended questions within my work, an expanded dialogue can take place with others inner voice through the power of artistic expression.  


     In artistic practice, the works I create and uses steam from formalist techniques overtly to provide a framework for viewers' to enter my portraits and documented video performances.  The work is less of an examination of materiality and more about giving a broader meaning to content with gender references.  The projects I make or collaborate with, either in video, performance or photography, influences each other. It’s an intuitive practice. 


     Vilem Flusser states in his book, Towards a Philosophy of Photography, “in the act of photography, the camera does the will of the photographer but the photographer has to will what the camera can do.”
