My work is a figurative and surreal exploration of relationships and social systems. Much of the work is driven by questioning the tension in these relationships and working to resolve them through a point-of-departure approach.
My current series speaks to the transformation and metamorphosis of women, as they move through their lives, and as they rise up and defy the social systems that have forced them into silence. From giving birth to the chaos of menopause, from the years of being sexualized and minimized, the social retaliation of being strong and educated, women are told they are not good enough, strong enough, pretty enough, weak enough, silent enough, not enough. Now in this time, more than any time before, we are transformed, we are heard, we have an empowered voice. And yet the damage is done and so many can't find their way up, past, out, of the hurt that was heaped upon them in the quiet rooms of dark homes. We rise. Sisters. Reaching our hands down to those that can't lift up, and together we become a force of love and compassion and hope. The dark corners are cleared and love shines a light upon us, in this time like no other before we claim me too and we rise. This work begins to explore this journey from the inside out.
