My work is about the rudiments of human existence, biological
identity, who we are genetically and culturally. I imagine the soundless language of chromosomes within the body at
subatomic levels. Genetic material is passed on, it  mutates.
It creates life and lifestyles. Human relationships have been impacted by religion, science, and politics. I search the meager remnants of my cultural and biological identity for images and words to communicate the passion I feel for these universal ideas- for the phenomenon of self coming into consciousness.
