Artist Statement:

I am an interdisciplinary artist from Texas currently living in Chicago.

I have an idiosyncratic relationship with language that I navigate through color and sensation. 

Specific color combinations have the ability to provide me with comfort and stimulate me emotionally, leaving me feeling vulnerable.

I yearn for an overcast sky and take pleasure in the absence of the sun. I am motivated by the fact that my thoughts cannot always be conveyed through the limited means of the English language.

It fascinates me that the formal shape of language is inextricable from its auditory actualization; one is able to understand the thoughts I convey in this moment because of the layers of language we have built together. However, formal language, as an organized system of communicating and understanding, seems to me incomplete. 

Miscommunication is inescapable.

Therefore I choose to visually express language. The weight and shape of language is a growing interest of mine, which has always been a crucial part in my linguistic understanding.

Oral language is interpreted through remembered sound.
