A romanticized world in which life is resurrected through the process of decomposition
is the current focus of my research.
An adolescence spent attending numerous funerals within my large extended family enabled me
to witness ritualistic behaviors associated with mourning and religious ideals. Observation of
others worshiping the body created an early obsession with mortality and a preoccupation with death.
Intricate drawings allow repair, dissection, revelation and concealment of imagery, while also
exploring the idea of the body as a vessel and examining the inevitable.The compositions are constructed
of allegorical symbols which create a continuous union between life and death, with no beginning and no end.
Life infused into something that has ceased to exist.
