Artist Statement

I'm invested in portraying the figures I paint in a way that is honest to my perspective as a female. I've employed a cast of characters and I depict them in scenes that invoke a familiarity and sentimentality that is universal to anyone. I look through romantic goggles upon my friends. I enjoy being close and expressing my affection. Finding an ease, a comfort in a moment, that's what triggers me most. I'm creating legends of of kinship, affinity, and intimacy. I'm sharing a feeling of exhilaration and warmth, expressing through our idiosyncrasies our similarities.
