I am an artist because, in these scarcity driven times, practically everything we download through our senses, is attempting to sell us a "better self". It is my belief that when we stop seeking outside of ourselves for answers, the reverberation is a deep sense of personal authority. Art is the instrument through which I can share complex questions and concerns without wielding persuasion.
And, it has been my experience that the creative process mirrors the meditative process. The more I open myself up to the infinite potential of the present moment, the more sincere I become. It is with this sentiment that I have devoted much of my life to the study and practice of eastern spirituality and to conceptual art. I have discovered that with time and space, I am able to churn my concerns into creative work that joins people in a communal sensory experience.
Dance is a universal language of the soul that has the potential to communicate the subtle and sensory realms of the human experience. It is my primary artistic medium.
That said, I am interested in dissolving the walls of separation that exist between audience and artist. So I continue to potentiate my work through the written, visual, and digital arts.
One of the primary social concerns that informs my creative process is women's health and autonomy. We continue to live in a world that perpetuates stale beliefs about women, our bodies, and our roles in the home and in the culture. Many of these beliefs are aimed at silencing the female voice and diminishing our independence. I am a Feminist who does not wish to abandon my Femininity, rather I intend to empower it through my creative, educational, and healing endeavors.
