The brain does not know the difference between an actual experience and one visualized. I explore these experiences in my visual work through a meticulous progression of layers informed by numerology, geographical location, and colors I make using numbers. The images I create document people as place and the security we feel in familiarity. I uncover these emotions through my process as one explores a landscape - one that is constantly renewed by the elements and experienced differently with each return. 

My relationship with memory and nostalgia has led to an investigation of the perception of time and the emotions we attach to life events as a result of linear thinking. As a curator and an artist of all media, I seek to push the boundaries of experience and education to inspire new perspectives of death, community, and human interaction.
