Artist Statement

 

My own personal memory as a dancer contributes to the existing space I am creating through experiences of discipline, practice, balance, and relaxed fluid faculty of control. I try to capture this through various materials, the movement of my own body as well as the memory of movement that can become distorted and transparent.

I enjoy using various materials such as charcoal, chalk pastel, acrylic and textured surfaces.

As a performer myself, I am struck at the apt abstract representation of the disconnect between onstage and offstage, the surreal juxtaposition of the brightly lit and on display world with the magical darkness and creativity that lives behind the scenes, just a few inches or feet away. The elimination of either world would result in the destruction of that beautiful illusion which is live theater - Katherine McDaniel, Editor Synkroniciti Magazine
