largest impact on my life and art was
becoming totally deaf at the age of eleven.
I grew up inspired by the color environments
my mother created around our home and in her
beautiful clothing designs she made for me
and others. I worked on Saturdays in her
custom clothing boutique during the late
patterns that she would sew. My mother’s
color themes flowed into my
like words you learn from hearing them
spoken. I could visualize sound in colors,
shapes, and movement. Vibration creates a
visual sound as well as a musical sound.
What I sense in vibration around me and
moving through me I translate into my art."
