Artist Statement

"As an artist, I grapple with the experience of living in a human body. I seek to illustrate the body affected by self-perception, violence, trauma, illness, and mood. My process usually begins with an exploration of art I admire; a soaking in of fragments which I can repurpose to create my own pieces. I am deeply inspired by the Austrian/German symbolist painters and the post-impressionist work of artists such as Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Paul Gaugin, and Vincent Van Gogh. My goal in creating art is always to reach the stories living inside of others."
