As a Child of 22.

18 years of schooling and she wants to waitress...
What does it mean?
...
Please answer that.
...
And in the mean time,
gander at my application to the Des Moines Arts Festival.


Between Lines Self Portrait


Twin One / Twin Two


Lacey / Bobby

I am driven to creative ends from the story of my parents: their immigration, assimilation, pursuit of financial security and the preservation of their children in the face of social, ethnic and class boundaries. Dedicated to the recording and documenting of their lives befitting "The American Dream", I paint and draw portraits. Each piece is a narrative of my own reflections on each person; I utilize the creative process as a motivating method for research and greater comprehension of both anthropology and the individual. The intended result is a building and layering of mixed media, often transferred photographic images, papers underneath charcoal, acrylic, and oil.
