GENERAL STATEMENT

I am obsessed with what it is to be female, attractive and performative in today's world. Modern female icons like Beauty Pageant Queens and Barbie dolls fascinate me, and I am drawn to their indoctrinating power almost against my will. My paintings pit beauty and distortion; theatricality against truth; authenticity against conformity; and complicity against rebellion. These colorist, expressionist paintings reflect the on going love/hate relationship between women, societal standards, and self-esteem.
