The lived experience of disabilities is the primary subject matter for my creative research. I attended the Child Study Center for three years, a school for students with learning disabilities where I became intrigued with disabilities research. I am inspired by the larger disabled community to create artworks that comment on the first person disabled experience. To this end, I create interactive artworks using photography, sound installations, and sculpture. I am always striving to develop new work that precisely combine elements which clearly emphasize the empowerment potential of creating artwork that openly talks about the lived experience of learning disabilities.
