Artist Statement:

"Currently, I work with the inherent textures of humans and nature to show their archetypal qualities that are encrypted in everything natural. There are stories written in the lines of our palms and in the tree trunks, leaves, and mountain ranges of the world. As I work with this subject I find myself studying the ancestry and identity of people, land masses, and other organic forms of life through their inherent textures and recognizing their connectedness. In this series, Ancestral Archetypes, I continue this ongoing theme using the silhouetted figures of real people paired with the gardens, plants, and natural surroundings near their homes and attempt to tell the stories of a few women subliminally through their enigmatic shadows."
