The first ten years of my life were spent on the island of Antigua, where I came to recognize the sea as an orientation point, like a city’s grand monument or a familiar mountain range. I consider the polarization of opinion and fact through imagery inspired by current events, archival documents, and weather. The act of making resists the act of skimming, insisting that I absorb and respond to the information. My practice is a pause. I make work with the intention of offering a moment of reflection, and as a call to action to find solutions for navigating this changing world.
