Artist Statement

My current body of work on paper and canvas uses volatile watercolor, studio remnants, lint, medical tape, hot glue and more to abstractly illustrate what so many women go through but are not encouraged to discuss; the double-standards placed on our sexuality, the immense mental and physical space that caregiving demands, as well as traumas related to sexual assault, pregnancy and childbirth. Through traditional (paint) and symbolic (staples) mixed media, I portray the sweetness of imaginary babies and mothers, along with the gore of tumors, bleeding and C-section scars.
