Artist Statement

I have a strong desire—also an obligation—to use literature, poetry, photography, art and any other form of expression to show how our history and the untold stories of our ancestors are still shaping who we are today. My goal is to tell those stories with honesty and simplicity so that the overarching message of Love is not lost but alive and stirring from the page.
