Artist's Statement

My work deals with the contrast between balance and imbalance, control and the lack thereof. Specifically, I explore the movement of the human body through space and time. My interest in the nature of the human form comes from living with cerebral palsy – a physical disability. 

I have developed a caricature that allows me to show how I see my body. My figure has no face, no defining feature, and is always just an outline. Often, when someone sees a person with a physical disability that is all they see at first, just the physical disability. 

My work tells a story, with many small moments that show the passage of time. All my paintings, drawings, and illustrations are pieces of this story.
