My current body of work is a process-based investigation that finds form in color, paper, clay, and video. Substrates of my life experiences: East and West, line and swath, gathered and untethered.

The fragmented nature of the works is a result of the fleeting moments I am able to capture and the very materials used, materials that are structurally challenged by how I underscore and manipulate their dual characteristics. Thread, for example, is at once a binding element and a fragile link.

As I unravel the layers typically obscured by our daily existence, I stitch together textures and patterns of my own and our collective histories. I embrace the imperfections as I move closer to the center.
