Artist Statement

I seek to express the complexities of connection, both animate and inanimate, in my work. Connection is expressed by petitioning an emotional response from the viewer through intimate imagery. My work depicts feminine portraiture and nudes, where the subject is experiencing a number of emotions, in an attempt to invite the viewer to connect on a deeper level. Often times, the work is layered with overlapping sections that intertwine and obscure the subject matter. Though my works have begun to evolve stylistically, they are all tethered by my underlying curiosity of connections and how they are made, felt, or experienced.
