My impulse in making the Life Studies (aftermath drawings) is to depathologize the negative affects of trauma so that they can be 'seen.'

By integrating the drawings into a more complex online ‘moving picture” this ‘seeing’ might NOT be a witness of “sorrow of the singular other,”

but instead its antithesis—a catalyst to  for community formation--feeling rather than numbness, resulting in a felt re-solution leading to effective protection and prevention of present-future abuse and exploitation.

 I examine and attempt to distill trauma and it's companion--stigma through my art.
