dc.description.abstractIn order to give voice to the understanding of my individuality, I create work as a memoir through visual symbolism. My hope is that as I revisit these parts of my life I am able to reflect on and release negative fragments. I choose to create work visually emphasizing the extremes of life using accumulation of imagery, vivid color, bold markings and textures. I balance the extremes by visually communicating the nuances of life through the use of delicate line quality, a soft color palette, and calm and repetitive subjects to indicate meditation and the passage of time. This body of work allows me to recognize myself as an artist. In turn, my creative process helps me to understand where I want to be as a person in order to maintain a sense of balance.
