“My work explores the unrooted human condition, reflecting my nomadic life experience and as a person of color and immigrant who aspires to feel belonged. I am not deeply rooted in a particular culture or a place. The act of painting is analogous to nesting in the place I live and creating an intimate space. Through my works, I want to convey a sense of belonging and inclusion regardless of the differences in backgrounds.”
