    Through our dreams, we make contact with a vast, yet elusive side of ourselves. My work utilizes and reflects converging objects found in nature, such as accumulation of flora and fauna. Drawing inspiration from nature’s paradoxical beauty, I aim to create work that not only stands out for its regal impact but also for its sensitivity. My inspiration comes from an ongoing interest and profound respect for indigenous tribal cultures of the Amazon, Aboriginal natives of Australia and the Yoruba tribe of West Africa. I am fascinated with garments and textiles of Native Americans and Afro-futurism. With this vocabulary of indigenous art, along with my personal dreams, I make whimsical forms resulting in a diary of my personal mythology. My work spans the exquisite spectrum of clean and simple, to the grotesque accumulative take-over of the body. Through writing, drawing and sculpting, I seek to create a dialogue with the natural world while exploring elements of my cultural identity. Examining different exotic cultures of the world has enabled me to connect the dreaming experience as a universal theater of fantasy, nightmare, desire and prophecy. Each work of art is the result of my personal interaction with my dreaming experience. I explore different themes of ambiguity as a means of subverting the borders between my subconscious and the mundane restrictions of society. I work with fragmented narratives and their morphologies to merge them in order to reflect the holistic nature of life. Read Less
