Born out of necessity, art is my compass through the unpredictable landscape of my mind. Mental health, body (dis)illusions and self destructive thoughts and behaviours are the focus of my work. I create bold, beautiful images that are reflective of the dark and the light inside each of us. When the mind is in a state where it can only see darkness, the world feeling muted, the body feeling heavy, you have to confront color before you can perceive it. Vibrant colors reflect hopefulness. I do not believe in societal pressures or definitions of beauty, and through my work I am a part of the counterculture redressing this issue. I draw women in all their beautiful forms, shapes, sizes and colors. They are the epitome of creativity. I am woman and this is my journey.
