I have an emotional attachment to my work which stem from my personal story and social issues. Although I am schooled in Graphic Arts. I experiment with materials, textures, and sounds to create pieces that are curious and thought provoking. Because my work is inspired by my life, it is a journey that takes the shapes and forms, sights and sounds from my past and brings them to current affairs and thoughts.
