A variety of methods can be used to explore the fundamental constructs of the mind and how it navigates in the world. My research utilizes creative processes such as drawing, sculpture and writing to explore the elements of my own existence. This has led me to explore the topics of metaphysics, ontology and most importantly, authenticity. The authentic self can be derived from how an individual experiences and reacts to their surroundings. By reflecting on the authentic self, one is able to realize their freedom, acknowledge self-deceptions, and question their responsibility to create their individuality.
