“I live for painting, drawing, and writing. Most of my days are spent alone in my home studio along with my calico cat, Violet or at the local park and community garden. My work toggles between attention to and disregard for detail. Merging physical parts and complex emotions experienced in nature, isolation, expression and intuition, my aim is to create work that presents femininity as a force for universal good and a force for the future.”
