Artist Statement Juror

We often both show and hide things when we allow others to peek into our lives. My work is full of layers and contradictions, protecting and revealing at the same time. I intertwine the precious and the discarded together, and explore finding a definite truth while mucking around in a mess. My work gives definition to the shapeless and the intangible, going behind what is presented, seeing through the veils, and perceiving what is hidden.

Growing up in a family of ten kids, I made art as a way to have something that was truly mine. It continues to be a place to put everything. There is so much that happens to us from day to day and we react to it, yet it does not ever seem to encompass all of our emotions and thoughts. Creating art for me is a way to get it all out at once whether it is pretty or not. It allows for thought and emotion to be expressed in a visual form.
