It has been my experience that the creative process parallels the meditative process. The more we open ourselves to the infinite potential of the present moment, the more sincere we become. It is with this sentiment that I have devoted much of my life to consciousness and creativity. I have discovered that with time and space, I am able to churn my concerns into art that joins people in a communal sensory experience.
I am an artist because in these scarcity driven times, practically everything we experience is attempting to sell us a “better self”. It is my belief that when we stop seeking outside of ourselves for answers and fulfillment, the result is a deep sense of personal authority. Art is the medium through which I can share complex questions and concerns without using persuasion.
It is fueled by experiential observation.
I mostly work in the medium of dance. That said, I have begun to potentiate my work through the digital arts, sound, and writing.
One of the primary social concerns that inspires my creative process is women's health and sovereignty and I continue to contribute to the empowerment of femininity through my work as a healing practitioner.
Because I grew up with the birth of the internet, cell phones and social media, I became accustomed to witnessing the desire for power amplified through technology. This is another social concern that I tackle through teachings and artistic expressions on presence and autonomy.
