Artist Statement

“Without cultural heritage and diversity, we cannot be individuals. Where we come from is not nearly as important as whom we come from. Without the necessary tools to understand each of our own cultural heritage, we cannot begin to know ourselves. Discovering who we are and who brought us to this point is the joy and the purpose of creative expression. Without that creative voice many of us cannot reach out and touch others with our message.”
