Factors such as my personal history, geography, social-political issues, and relationship with technology inform my work. I like to explore mediums including painting, collage, animation, video, and most recently augmented reality. My approach using various materials is similar in that it is intuitive, and only planned out to a certain degree.

My most recent work combines found objects, everyday supplies and fragmented self-portraiture composed on 2D panels. It is accompanied by a digital augmented reality component viewed through a mobile device. Interaction with the piece triggers animation and audio. I like the idea that this work is not just something to stand and observe. You have to use your hands, arms and body to physically move around a space. I like the uncertain variables while viewing the work mixing the physical world a digital element seen through a small handheld portal.
