I use my work to be a vehicle with which to make connections and encourage understanding. I create to express the depth of my personal experience without finding myself completely tangled words, talking in circles, often leading to miscommunication.
While my subject matter varies from piece to piece, it is my ultimate goal to emphasize aspects of strength in the vulnerability of each subject. How being beaten, broken, or frail can, in fact, be the essence of a person’s fortitude.
In this way, I endeavor to demonstrate that although women have historically been seen as purely objects of beauty, there is a complexity women possess by being simply human and also veiled in various layers of vulnerability, purposefully or inadvertently disguising their inner strength. This concept broadly symbolizes my own struggle as a person, to demand my worth through qualities that are often overlooked: my humanity, my depth of emotion, my experience, and my intelligence.
The methods I employ to communicate this typically fall within watercolor and pen drawings, or oil on canvas.
