Working primarily with watercolor and mixed media, my work focuses on an abstract figurative style. I enjoy using my creative voice to represent vulnerability, femininity, and emotion. 

 

Pairing dark, masculine color palettes, and heavy brushstrokes, with the female form creates drama and evokes curiosity within the work.

Movement and posture are the concentration of my work. How does our body hold yearning? trauma? or Love? The way someone takes up space provides an insight into a larger narrative. This kind of non-verbal communication gives us a glimpse into our emotional state; creating a deeper understanding of who we really are.
