Artist Statement

"For me, painting is a form of self-inquiry and self-expression.  All of my paintings are, in essence, self-portraits.  On the surface, my work is often viewed as “fun” and “sexy.”  However, on closer examination, the use of iconic images and designer brands, construct and then deconstruct an “ideal”- an ideal that, in my mind, is an unattainable standard of what society dictates women should be.  My inspiration derives from my own inner conflicts stemming from this social conditioning.  Despite the dark undertone, my work signifies the elements of hope, humor and humanity."
