Artist statement
My work is mainly focused in political and social commentary from a feminist perspective. I use my work to portray both the beautiful façade as well as the grotesque reality of our society through sculpture, print, and illustration. I use pieces of my own life experiences, political views, and spirituality to portray how I experience and interact with the world around me. My work looks at historic and current representations of women and how we have been and still are being treated by society, the government, and mainstream media.

My chosen materials are to represent the way women and AFAB people are expected to behave (passive, beautiful, small) and how their value changes over time and as the age. Like the human body, my materials will begin to deteriorate in some way (rust, fade, shatter).
