Artist Statement: Women are enigmatic. They fuel my work. Through this series, I am seeking to define the dichotomy of language between man and woman. Even as a child, I have experienced the guilt of desire. This work is a journey to expresses that struggle; the wall I experience engaging in these interpersonal relationships.
