As a self-educated contemporary mixed media artist Jersey-born, Cali- matured; I find myself searching for the balance between inevitable chaos, and labored peace.
Mixed media gives me the range I need as a QPOC to examine identity, mental illness, the ego, our intentions, and our anxieties. I peel back and apply the layers that define AND constrict us on obnoxiously large canvases, giving them their own freedom to explore.
At best, my work is an act of pure catharsis, overcome by illustrations of automatism. I create immersive work to tap into the psyche, mine and yours. Work that calls for the audience to retreat within themselves, and question what is it they truly feel.
The subjectivity of individualism is what makes it all worthy.
