Artist Statement

In my artistic practice I consider the complexity of guilt/shame culture, alongside the simultaneous normalization and acceptance of habitual patterns and pleasures.  Works explore themes of valuing love and connection, with a dependency on technology as an accessible platform for such. With the use of symbolism such as cell phones, messages, and cigarette packs, relating to the topic of addiction to represent these themes.

With an interdisciplinary approach, I work within the realms of drawing, printed matter, painting, ceramics, and installation. The variety of objects and media provide a physical element to what would otherwise remain hypothetical, in memories, or visually online. A version of the subject matter can now be experienced through viewership, touch, destruction and so on.
