 I make paintings and sculptures about the multifaceted messiness of communication and the negotiation of being seen, heard, and taken seriously. My work is a reclaiming of uncertainty and a celebration of honesty. The minimal shapes, bold colors, and piecemeal compositions represent moments of agency, sureness, and being unapologetic. It is a proxy for my own voice and by extension a nod to the unheard, misunderstood, and silenced voices of others.
