MFA Printmaking ’15

In recent years I have become aware of my emotional and mental health limitations, experiencing paralyzing immobility effects due to information overload while interacting as a person of color on popular social media platforms. I am comforted by my recent turn to drawing and painting as my way of coping with these increasing anxieties. As the level of responsibility and expectation within my art career continue to rise, along with my ethical qualms regarding social media’s negative affects on world democracies, I will no doubt rely on the activity of meditative art-making in order to maintain my mental health.
