I create large scale figure paintings of LGBTQ-identified women, most recently focusing on those who have impacted my life in some way. My work toys with the concept of glorification vs. objectification vs. modification. I incorporate various facets of nature in to my work in order to comment on the mutability of life, gender and beauty. I have come to focus on painting as a medium because of its primarily masculine history in the western art canon.
I am dedicated to my studio practice and intend to continue making art throughout the course of my life, no matter what path my career may take. In the future, I see my artwork marking a sexually fluid presence and stimulating dialogue in both the feminist and mainstream art worlds.
I've started a project called PHILANTHROPART, for which I donate portion of the proceeds from my artwork sold to a new charity or non-profit organization each month. All of the work on this site is available for the project, but if you want more details please visit the project site by clicking on the "PHILANTHROPART" tab above.
