Artist Statement of Work

Tell us about your work (style, approach, philosophy, subject and/or theme):

I love wordplay. Applying the flash fiction method to my prose and poetry helps me better build a scene, and condense vulnerability into a single line. I build off of that line while working within a 5-10 minute sprint. Other times a feeling comes over me…a word, or thought is heavy in my mind. Then I set up a stopwatch and see what comes out. I enjoy the challenge and the time sensitive nature of it. It is structured chaos in the sense that I never know what will come out, especially when I let my emotions take over.

As a younger writer, I wrote about traumas and other life experiences. Using words to paint a picture is something that helped me. In the last couple of years, I have grown as a person and, into a different writer. I have done much work on healing old wounds, and I’m looking towards writing beyond the trauma. 

I do not consider myself a technical writer and I do not like to put too much thought into the flow of a piece…but focus more on the feelings it elicits in the reader.
