My work obsessively discusses the self, myself. I prefer paint to personal statement. 

 

I seek an ever-evolving and fantastically unattainable personal definition of perfection. I snub all my past selves and their decisions, and then I talk about it. My focus is self portraiture, through the lenses of family history, my femininity, and the pressure of expectations I’ve imposed upon myself since childhood. 

Nearly all my work finds its basis in photography. I like to blur the line between the vernacular and constructed using oil and pigment.

I take comfort in the push and pull of control in my work. Painting is a largely selfish endeavor in which I always retain the last word.
