ARTIST’S STATEMENT

As a multimedia artist, I weave poetry, photography, film, and audio components into my work in order to express creative visions that address social issues. It is vital my role as an artist that I represent and advocate for earth and humanity in an effort to stimulate action. As a photographer, I approach photography with a humanistic sensibility in order to discuss and address important social issues especially dealing with the border between the USA and Mexico.

I write poetry to address these troubling issues and to bring a vocal element to my views. I then roll the poem into paper beads, which allows me to transfer the words on paper into energy and action.

Each bead becomes a prayer to honor the word and the subject of the poem. This process provides me an opportunity to connect with my purpose as an artist and to further the changes that I hope will take place in the world.
