My artwork is the reflection of an inner journey, both intuitive and spiritual. After years of teaching, nurturing, empowering and inspiring my students, I've finally given myself "permission" to explore my own personal art making with unabashed joy.
Through the seemingly endless manipulation of found images I strive to create artworks that give me visual pleasure while simultaneously reflecting my personal experiences as well as the richness of my diverse ancestry.
