Artist Statement:

My cat greets me at the door. She digs her claws into the coarse, shallow carpet that covers the apartment floor. I take off my shoes, turn on the lights, and settle into this space of my own making. Within safe and familiar walls, I move, think, and speak freely. Memories blend together, routines and rituals repeat themselves, and dreams of past and future moments invoke excitement as well as paralyzing anxiety.
Where I Live presents layered imagery of spaces and objects inside the 550-square-foot apartment that I share with my partner and our cat. Abstracting these mundane aspects of my everyday life using paint and mixed media, I contend with our apartment as a holding space for my body and my mind.
