Artist Statement: Not being able to express my own feelings as a child made me turn to my artwork for free reign of my own expression. Through the Motions, in reference to how most of my life has felt, is a visual representation of my attempts at dealing with my own wide range of emotions: grief, anger, sadness. This body of work is a reflection of my emotional struggles, and personal conflicts. My journey of self reflection through art is one that is still in its infancy, and these works are a glimpse into that journey.
