Artist Statement
My artwork examines the ways in which trauma can affect a woman’s identity and how it influences the reflection of her own self-image. I explore the complex issues of the female psyche and body that is deeply rooted in mystery, unafraid. My work delves into the issues of identity, motherhood, and beauty through a feminist lens. I want to change the conventional way we normally view the female, not as something to admire, but more a reflection of her inner power.  
By incorporating both traditional and digital techniques that reveal beautiful, obscure and complex designs, I utilize a combination of techniques including painting, collage, photography, handmade materials, double exposures, color, and texture. I challenge the American beauty standard that is confining and repressive.  
I want my work to defy how physical appearance is a measurement of self-worth. These societal norms can be harmful to the health and sanity of a woman. I want to express a voice to those who walk in silence bearing the painful burdens our society makes us suffer through alone. To show the raw and underlying stories of loss, separation, and tragedy in an artistic way that people can understand and relate.
