ARTISTIC STATEMENT

I am curious about understanding people and their stories. What the body needs in order to perform everyday tasks. For me, as a creator, mover, artist, athlete, and human. I wonder about the limits we experience in the body. Physically and emotionally, extreme and minimal. I am intrigued by the physically demanding, along with the subtleties of life. Pushing the boundaries, to the simple shifts. Noticing the importance to have both, and everything in between. My work strives to share and transfer the exploration of these experiences to the viewers and movers.
