Artist Statement

My art explores the dynamic interplay between the old and the new, weaving a visual narrative of diverse lives observed during my travels. By capturing the essence of others' existence, I delve into the intricate tapestry of human experience, shedding light on the similarities and differences that shape our lives. Through the lens of their houses and backyards, I aim to unveil the subtle contrasts between cultures, offering a glimpse into the unique stories embedded in the landscapes of daily life. My work invites viewers to reflect on the shared threads that bind us, while embracing the richness found in the distinct hues of each cultural fabric.
