Artist Statement

Her. She is this, she is that. She is molded by the ideas of those around her. She relies on no one but herself, but does not always reveal her strength of independent thought. The images pinned to her are but ornaments on her identification. These weigh her down, lift her up, and are but a passing in time. The impact of these ideas can be her chain in life and society deems it necessary to make it difficult to break. Whether free in her mind from these ideas or not, they will always be present in her. She cannot resist them. They are her.
