ARTIST STATEMENT

This current body of work portrays the ideas of self-reflection, past and present personal issues and the feminine aesthetic in an idealized way. These ideas are just the framework of the art I create. For me, they always go deeper than intended and challenge said issues that beg to be confronted. A somewhat nonsensical stream of consciousness is something I need to create my work because it allows me to confront any given issue I may have once had or still have today without holding back. Regarding the imagery, I tend to gravitate my work towards the decorative, feminine, and that idealized nature of it all. The juxtaposition of idealized imagery combined with personal and psychological issues such as severe anxiety, mild depression and self-hatred excites me and brings a little bit of light into my darkest moments.
