My works address societal issues, and as a visual artist, I feel the need and responsibility to shed some light on these issues. Every individual faces every day issues throughout their daily lives and to help them come to terms with these issues is the purpose of art. My intention, through the production of my works, is provoke a dialogue with viewer. If viewing my work/s the viewer is moved than it is up to the viewer to figure out why. By accomplishing this I know that the work/s have served their purpose, and that is for the emotional growth of the viewer.
