In the words of Joy Ladin, "Being is something that constantly involves becoming." In my work, I consider psychological and physiological states of being, exploring vulnerability and the "not knowing", or in-between, states of the psyche.

I find myself often exploring these ideas through the female body. In making work that focuses on the feminine form, I celebrate form and creativity, my own vulnerabilities and desires, my strengths and my weaknesses. 

Featuring watercolor paint and Sumi ink on paper, my paintings are a meditation on the power and agency of humankind. The work ranges in size from larger-than-life-size portraits to small paintings on the curled end scraps of rolls of paper.

Conversations, studio visits and commissions are welcome.
