My voice in art making is a response to a conscious recognition of the social problems and issues that affect lives daily. The concept within all my works identify issues that affect gender, race and self identity. My work is layered with topics from headline news and social issues that relate to society, ethic groups and class status. The work examines questions related to space, confinement, and containment. My work also explores not only the physical impact, but also the psychological and economical impact of being confined. I see the works as narratives that speak through personal voices to convey the passion and struggles of living life in the inner city.
