Artist Statement

My work uses mundane objects in domestic, urban and rural spaces as a vehicle to engage in deeper conversations of belongingness, emotional distress, sexuality and gender. My gestural technique focuses on paint as an object and a material that holds as much value as the image being depicted. Pastels, fun mark making, and thick brushstrokes bring in the viewer. Initially what seems lighthearted and easy to digest is really exploring deeper dialogues beyond the surface. In my performances my body is the vessel to continue exploring the physicality and plasticity of paint while also delving on themes such as physical and mental stamina, becoming one with the space, and sexuality and gender.
