Artist Statement

 

 

When creating, I've found my best work comes when I can suspend judgement, putting my brain on auto-pilot as much as possible and tapping into the subconscious. This practice quiets my mind but I'm still engaging in constant assessment of the piece. Balance is a key component of my work: maybe because it's something we all crave.

My palette is very much influenced by my childhood obsession, Lisa Frank, as well as my love of strange/dark things. 

My work production ebbs and flows, but is always very personal. Sometimes I'm prolific, sometimes I don't paint for months. The last couple years have been a lot.

My favorite artist is Hilma af Klint.
