I spend a great deal of time in my practice processing the emotional resonance of visceral images, experiences, and stories that I have come into contact with. These often stem from my own life and the lives of others. I am a hoarder of memories, dates, and screenshots. I utilize certain tools (that also double as mediums) like graphite, installations, and reading performances to transcribe my feelings about the subjects and moments that I depict and the weight that their presence bears on me.”
