The exploration of identity constructed within our environment is the focal point for my works on paper. The self becomes an amalgamation of experiences and memories. Our experiences are fleeting; our memories become obscured by time, yet time is a human constraint. I am fascinated by the elusive nature at which identity navigates from one chapter of life to the next. Within my work I strive to embody the human effort to create a lasting imprint on society in our otherwise ephemeral existence. The manifestation of change, growth, and regeneration symbolizes the past, present, and future. How do we engage in our constructed environment, how do we find the means to progressively thrive, and paramount, how do we leave behind an impression of our actuality.
