"Art is Liberty. It is a tool that allows for wounds to be healed, to communicate who I have been, who I am and who I will be. Art gives me the privilege of opening up the bowels of my life and hope that somehow, this story of mine can find an echo when it is seen, when it is exhibited, and that those who gaze upon it and can experience some emotion to transport them to a place in the subconscious. Sometimes it is a mirror, sometimes a window."
