My paintings are a meditation on the power and agency of humankind as grounded in the feminine. With watercolor paint, Sumi ink and sometimes collected objects on paper, I consider ideas of vulnerability. My work incessantly examines the "not knowing", or in-between, states of the psyche. The works range in size from life-size portraits to small paintings on the curled end scraps of rolls of paper.

I seek to explore present-day psychological and physiological concerns around the female body. In making work that focuses on the female form, I applaud women’s freedoms, our bodies and our creativity. 

Conversations, studio visits and commissions are welcome.
