Artist Statement

    As a multidisciplinary artist I use methods of painting, sculpture and digital media as a means to express lived experiences and anxieties about the world we live in. Tackling themes of the body as an exploited object, a keeper of personal history, and the growing pains that come with discovering personal identity, and the struggle to achieve autonomy and self-determination.

   I enjoy straddling the line of horror and humor. Caught in a constant feed of bad news and bouts of doom-scrolling, using satire and poking-fun are ways I can bring awareness to harm without creating more in the process. As bleak as our circumstances may be, I make an effort to indulge in "silliness" because I do not want to live in a dark and serious world. My current work examines exploited labor, so being able to find joy and amusement in my work helps me to push back against the expectation that we must suffer to see the fruits of our labor.
