Artist Statement

I use etching, painting and drawing to foster and understand the body through self-portraiture. I do this by exploring facets and remnants of mental illness, gender identity, and chronic pain as things that affect and warp a persons perception of the 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 of the sphere of these issues.
