Artist Statement

My work focuses on the personal experience of femininity as a watchful (sometimes violent) presence. Often, the presence takes the form of a masculine shadow, a familial ghost, or versions of myself and other women. Various themes and personal symbologies float through all of my work; such as waxing and waning moons representative of the body in changing forms. My ultimate hope for my practice is to evoke memory and emotion, and for painting to act as a catalyst for love and in-depth thinking.
