Voyage Houston Interview
Do current events, local or global, affect your work and what you are focused on?
My work usually draws on the past to create a new present and future. However, the transformation I’ve personally experienced from hearing and seeing others’ story has allowed me to take the risk and tell my story, in a somewhat nontraditional form. The events in the last 10 to 15 years created new outlets, storytellers, and point of views via multiple art mediums. All of which are now more easily accessible than ever to use and view. It made me realize the importance of visibility and that there is nothing hindering me from telling my story or any story in a way I, as the artist and creator, want to. I have the power to create the personal or fictional narrative I want and if I don’t do it someone else will do it for me. To allow someone else to create and tell my story takes away my power. The power to create was one of the reasons why I became and still love being an artist. Looking back, my passion to become a creative was born out of my feelings of helplessness and lack of control over my life as a child.
