“I am using art to break down culture, identity and the memory of someone who is aware of domestic and
homefront events seen from the experience of growing up in poverty...My heart lies in the development of
children and the exposure to complex experiences which are magnified and reflected in the world. I am such
a product of my environment: I am my environment, I am the block, I am the house I grew up in.”
