I use my work as a tool to self reflect. It is all very personal to me because I primarily use close friends as my models. Although their faces are often excluded I reflect on the experiences of these individuals as I create spaces surrounding them. My art allows me to explore my perceptions of those dearest to me and self reflect the inner world that governs my thoughts and actions.
The human body is my focal point because it is an ever changing moveable organic form that holds unlimited beauty and potential. I want to reveal the emotive power and potential of figure. Things like anxiety, tension, serenity, and confusion can be communicated with completely faceless forms. I enhance this visual language by creating abstracted worlds that use color and form to story tell.
Oftentimes the worlds I create are portals into my own experiences and process.
