I create an inner landscape of self-reflection.
I am exploring themes of vulnerability. Many of my works juxtapose flowers with my own nude form. Within my work, the petals act as a barrier to conceal an inner self while simultaneously revealing the superficial body. The still black and white figures are frozen in place. As the artist, I study the forms and make detailed renditions of my body situated in different points in time. As the model, I am situated in between multiple mirrors, photographed, altered, projected, traced and examined for long periods of time.
The painting is a record of my introspection
