I tend to live in a made-up world in my mind which I share with others through art. I feel that making art is an act of inviting a sense of magic and beauty from one’s inner world into a physical world that can often feel cold, ugly, and unforgiving. I invite a spiritual focus into my work, through creating subjects and compositions intuitively. The value of art to me is getting to understand and see parts of a person’s inner world, so that in turn we all feel less alone in life.
I am greatly inspired by surrealism, and its way of attempting to create a more realistic reality by combining what is seen both inside and outside of the self. Seen and not seen. I love how the act of dressing one's body can be such a great way to express the inner self, externally, and maybe create a truer sense of self. I often use beads in wearable sculpture as a representation of creation as atoms, or building blocks of life, which can physically be held and used to create the world and self that I see and feel exist in a metaphysical world.
