My work examines personal identity through various depictions of life experience both past and present. These convoluted ideas are shaped through Pacific Island/Western upbringing infusing dreams, story telling, chants, and rituals, including various genres of American pop culture, folk traditions, and domestic life. Art making is a process of re-collecting. It brings to mind circumstance and promotes self-discovery. In this manner my work attempts to bridge the gap between past and present through series of identity-based concepts.
