statement

I have explored the majority of two-dimensional mediums, including encaustics and printmaking.  Oil paint is my fundamental choice because of its manageability allowing detail and transparency. I use Surrealism to have a relatable image in an alternate reality to heighten the subject matter.  This approach creates a visual that can be relatable, while thought-provoking through its abnormality.

I create conceptual art about mental disorders as a platform to express empathy and interactwith others about these topics that are typically avoided. It is to bring awareness to the commonality of others suffering from its many varieties. I want it to be used as a   catalyst towards a healthy discussion, instead allowing us to hide behind self-destructive tendencies.
