I have always been fascinated by people, by our bodies, relationships, and emotions. We are all such complex and mysterious creatures, and to me that is endlessly inspiring. The medium of ink facilitates a fluid relationship between work and myself. It allows for spontaneity and happy accidents. The figures that emerge as I paint are my expression of the human experience. As a young woman living with chronic pain, I have experienced quite a bit of sorrow, however, I have also known so much joy and beauty. My hope is that people will see their own stories in my work.
