I developed Dissociative Identity Disorder as a child. Trauma put walls up between me and myself and me and the world. My art work helps bring those down.
My paintings are performance pieces captured as stills and converted into acrylic and reproduction quilting fabrics. I am acting out scenes and narratives layered in meaning from my personal story. They are my psyche on canvas. I like shaping space, like Serra. The leg becomes the line rather than the line of the leg being the line. With these simplified compositions of my body I feel I am creating a sort of symbol, or character. D.I.D and trauma have given me a unique relationship to self, I explore this in my work.
