ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an multidisciplinary artist from NYC, whose works encompasses drawing, collage, hand-made artist books, altered maps, redacted prayer cards, fine art photography, and video, . Both my digital editions and one-of-a-kind pieces veer between the abstract and figurative. I have a collagist's mentality that allows me to continually incorporate and interpret ‘found subjects/objects’ that often have diverse points of view. I often employ my art in service to social activism. I use my strengths as a visual artist as a way of fighting the political, emotional and physical injustices perpetrated against women, children and a free press. Another aspect of my work is collaborating with artists and writers. I like how collaborations push me in different directions, open up new avenues of expression and resulting work is something each one of us couldn't achieve on our own.
