MFA year 2 sculpture

I have been studying how human emotions are portrayed in personal and societal relationships. In my artwork, I often use my own experiences as a child to express psychological subject matter and the effect that juvenescent adventure has on an individual as they mature. I construct unconventional self-portraits, family portraits, and communal portraits to stimulate my viewer to recall a memory of their own. In effect, I use articles from the past to make an impression on the present. Humor is a part of my delivery method and I intentionally make the work playful in order to encourage audience engagement.
