Like any other area of endeavor my work has changed as circumstances around me has changed and as I have felt compelled to respond to those changes. The experience of constant migration has forced me to reshape my art practice. That experience of life in three different regions of the world has brought home to me how much certain things affect our lives: borders and movement across them create natives and aliens; acculturation-how we navigate old and new identities-full of frustration and refreshing surprise.
