Daydreams and layers of the human experience are motifs I often reference in my work as I move through life and try to make sense of my subconscious. I’ve experimented with the layers of life that we may not see in our day-to-day reality but are constantly flowing through our physical experience. Patterns and repeating elements of nature throughout my work link the external natural environment and elements of cellular structures in the human body.
In my art, I often create unique worlds and atmospheres with the female figure as my subject. I reference narratives of human influence and mental spaces using movement and crafted environments. Finding inspiration in everything, texture, and color is critical to my process and the evolution of my work. Leaving elements of my pieces unrefined, I seek otherworldly settings that represent how I mentally build and deconstruct environments.
The natural world continues to be an inspiration in my work and a safe space where I go to grounding myself and reflecting on the world. I approach nature with more of a feeling and the atmospheric space it creates rather than using more representational images. My work questions and explores my own experience growing up in a rapidly globalizing society. I like to do work that is visually interesting and appealing for the viewer while also having the capacity to allow people to begin to question their experience or relationship with the ideas I put forward.
