In this mysterious internal landscape, where our experiences are not solid, knowable objects, where our feelings come and go, and where our deeper selves reside, my work explores what it feels like to be human, alive, female, with all the vulnerability, yearning, resilience, and complexity inherent inside us.
My recent work is a collection of collages and paintings of women, referencing aspects of her depth, vulnerability, and strength. Each, complex and exploratory, they are in direct rebellion against the instinct to simplify her to only what is visible at first glance and hint at something more allusive and compelling in the whole of her. Every figure is embodied, holding dignity and wholeness within the chaos and mystery.
