Water, soaking, dyeing,
Tracing, layering, marking
cutting, punching,
pick up, stick, dry

It took a long time for me to accept that the best lessons often come from the difficult moments in your life. I view my work as documents that tell the story of people who have long since passed from this world, preserving every single day that they spent with us. My work challenges the way we view time, by tracing, layering, drawing, and marking I can illustrate the variation of our days. I value life and death and believe that it is a circle that has no beginning or end.
