My work is the result of processing sensory information from others. My work whether it be illustration or sculpture expresses my fascination with human behavior, form, stimulus, character, and idiosyncrasies. I'm investigating how I process stimuli from the world and others and reflecting that processing of information into a form. Being a dyslexic and austic person, I have spent so much of my life in deep internal conflict with others or at a great distance to others. Through the creation of my work, I am finally able to communicate in a way that makes sense to me, and show them the things that I notice about them, which is often not fully graspable in words. My experiences through life and relationships as well as perception of self have fueled this work more than any formal training or particular inspiration.
The creation of this wall piece began by wanting to capture a perspective I don't get to see in the physical world. Seeing only the hands and face of someone is rare in most circumstances but what receives most of my attention. I think by removing the body it allows free unfiltered movement instead of connecting action to person. The hands looking back into the face as close friends offer a reflection of not only the self but of what is to be.
