Home Paintings & Installations Statement Biography Contact  

My work explores patterns in socio-cultural development that define the female condition in contemporary and historical times. Referencing my photos of women in everyday scenes, my installations are like modern simulacra, seeking to present an amplified version of realism. In the constructions of painted canvases and sculptural appendages, I aim to capture an isolated moment to reflect on its significance and record that moment into Herstory. Ultimately, I hope to reveal a shared humanity between cultures and continue the questioning of the constraints of gender roles inherent through identity.
