Artist Statement

I use printmaking, book arts, painting, and drawing to foster a relationship and understanding of the body through self-portraiture and abstraction. I do this by exploring facets and remnants of mental illness, gender identity, and chronic pain as things that affect and warp my relationship with my own body.

It is my aim that this work can create empathy between those with similar struggles, and become a point of discourse with those outside the sphere of these issues.
