"The underlying current in all of my work is my desire to express ideologies of freedom through consciousness. My oval portrait series is based on Edgar Allan Poe's short story, "The Oval Portrait", about how beauty is simultaneously the creator and destroyer of beauty. My oval portraits are meant to consider dogmas of beauty, consciousness, and identity in relation to the human condition."
