“I empathize with small details of the drips, squishes, and blooms I find, exploring the private spaces of my body for forms that speak to me of big mysteries. In an exploration and hyper realistic study of the human form, I search out and distill parts of me that sag, swell, and pucker. I want my work to confront viewers with their own bodies, causing private and public reflection. I want my work to make people question their acts of labeling, categorizing, and naming. I am also interested in dissecting beauty, in finding the sublime in the unnoticed and abject parts of ourselves.”
