STATEMENT

I make art that aims to untangle my ever-changing view of the world as I move into adulthood through representation of everyday thoughts, objects, and textures. Most of the subject matter is derived from an accumulation of lived, observed or studied concepts related to anything from television, fabric patterns, tropes in art history, to relationships and grief. Creating a visual response to these collections of knowledge and anxieties allows me to hold on to my own tangled view of things. Each composition is approached with humor born out of the reflection of human circumstance. The output being, hopefully, a shared moment of reflection, a laugh, a relatable discomfort, or a newfound comfort.
