My work explores the idea of the human soul. As one travels through life, the soul continues to evolve as one learns and grows through both joyful and sorrowful times. Certain moments can permanently impact a soul leaving it forever changed - even damaged by those events.My work explores those specific moments that shaped and defined my life. I’ve distilled each impactful moment down to one image that becomes a symbolic and visual language. I use that language in different ways and allow those images to interact with each other on paper and canvas. Those interactions represent the malleability of memory, and how my current view of life impacts my perspective on the events of my past.
