I started experimenting with paint and color in 1997 as a means of self discovery and liberated self expression. I quickly learned mixing mediums within my work added both complexity and depth to each individual piece. With a strong appreciation for both the female figure and abstract expressionism, my work is often blurring the line between the two.
Much of my inspiration comes from personal experiences as a woman deconstructing the societal bondage of oppression and silence. Through the self discipline of venturing into unknown territory within the hidden corners of myself, shedding layers of fear and doubt and embracing my own vulnerability and sensuality, my work is always autobiographical and evolutionary. Emotionally charged, my paintings and sculptures speak to the beauty, strength and power within all women while simultaneously exposing our human imperfections.
