We use memories to construct our identities, to fathom our pasts, and to create our idealized future selves. The ambiguous nature of memory necessitates that this construct is but a memorial to a transient self, but at the moment of creation, our thoughts become a mark of permanence - a symbolic language deciphering the artist's identity in a moment of action.

My work is an exploration of this symbolic language using a personal syntax, grammar, and physical toolset to describe the relation between mark making and identity in a moment of creation. Through this process, my work explores a personal philosophy and speaks to the ancestry implied within the marks of the medium.
