ARTIST STATEMENT  

“Taking items that are immediate to my experience, things such as food, beauty products, plants, bodily fluids, and capturing their essence in fabric and paper is my way of gaining understanding of the world.

Visually, I love to mix elements of beauty and disgust. Conceptually I investigate the modern woman’s relationship with her own body in relation to societal ideals of beauty. This includes topics of body image, vanity, sexuality, eating disorders, and individual sovereignty (or lack thereof).

My mission is to create objects that share an intimate, interactive, experience with the viewer that provokes them to reflect on the interrelations previously discussed and relate them back to their own life. With this I hope to open the conversation of body image and individual sovereignty."
