MIXED MEDIA IS UNIQUE IN THAT IT CAN CAPTURE
THE IMMEDIACY OF FEELING.
MODERN LIFE IS SO MULTI-FACETED. IT SEEMS ONLY NATURAL TO INTEGRATE MULTIPLE ELEMENTS INTO MY COMPOSITIONS.
Living in a gendered body, I often work with materials associated with women or women’s work by default. Items such as lace, crushed velvet, and corsets have become parts of a greater whole of both history and canvas. Each piece serves as a reflection upon deeply personal, yet common, experiences. Therefore, it is not always necessary for the viewer to understand the impetus, only to find some resonance in the end result.
