Artist Statement

As a multimedia artist, I am not attached to a lone medium; I respect and cherish the different qualities and strengths of all media, and I use the tool that best suits the style and story of each piece. Though my work has visual variety, there is always contextual and stylistic continuity.

The inspirations for my subject matter are folklore and storytelling; civil rights and social justice; and American, mid-century pop culture. Most often my work is critical, celebratory and reflective of these things.

 

monsters and lore series

In this series, I explore my fascination of everything spooky; the art included observes folklore, classic horror staples, and all things playfully macabre.  

 

early work

My early body of work represents the time in my life spent in thorough self exploration and discovery; themes of femininity, feminism, romance and wanderlust are ever-present.
