Utilizing a variety of subject matter and media, my work is most often an examination of my personal battles with mental health. It has been a slow process and an ongoing journey to accepting that my mental health has an effect on my everyday life, and unfortunately, it is the times when I forget this truth that are the most troubling to me. In the middle of a conversation, I will start to dissociate and forget information, even to the extent of forgetting what my body is. I often find myself staring at my own outstretched hand in bafflement trying to realign and reprocess information as quickly as I am able. Currently, my work revolves around these times when I feel detached or in a place of struggle as I learn to accept myself and my reality.
