My daily studio practice is a combination of painting with watercolor, gouache and ink, and drawing with graphite on paper. I enjoy the juxtaposition of controlled mark making against the organic swell and undulations of watercolor as it takes form.
My artwork is inspired by the evolution of women in history, textiles, fashion and music. The subjects in my work are caught somewhere between rapture and unrest. The paintings are both celebrations of past and present, as well as explorations of racial, social and gender divides. The works take on a lucidity as bold patterns and textures are at play, resulting in a marriage of color study and portraiture.
My recent body of work explores themes of beauty, power and imagined mysticism. I am interested in women who challenge traditional gender roles and standards of beauty. I am inspired by women who do not conform.
