"I am always deciphering meaning or purpose by questioning “how” and “why”. Through these investigations and with the clues that are before me, I am getting a better understanding of who I am and how life works. My artwork is a reflection of these investigations and become a visual explanation of the process and outcome of issues related to archaeology and human history."
