Of her artworks she notes, “I create as a way to document the lives I’ve shared in, it provides a way to honor a person’s existence and make visible the marks they have imprinted upon me and the environment- a legacy left as well as those still to
come. Intimacy abounds in lives encountered. I aimto extract the inherent liminality of a moment before action as a way to articulate our stories.”
