Heading 1

I explore the interconnectedness of life forms using traditional mediums such as charcoal, watercolors and oils. My drawings and paintings are landscapes that reflect urgency and anxiety around climate change and global instability, from a feminist perspective. In 2015 I started my Clusterfuck series, representations of physiological materials; bones, muscles fibers, roots, and veins all interwoven into surreal worlds reflecting the multiple crisis that have risen up and festering long beneath the radar. Hidden within these compositions are faces, and  body parts that blur gender, race, and biology. My highly detailed caverns and membranes demand closer viewing—a very different experience than looking at a device. I want to engage people in a way that asks them to leave their technology behind, thus creating a new canon in art herstory.
