My work crosses multiple mediums and blurs the line between; illustration, fine art and design. I like to combine analogue and digital in a lot of my imagery, using my experience in photoshop to stitch my sketches and paint strokes into a final, complete piece. I like to explore and play with different textures and mark-making while developing ideas.
I'm interested in sensitive topics, and I want my work and imagery to encourage conversation about difficult subjects such as sexual assault, body image and disabilities, so that stigma may decline. I think that interpretation of artwork can be such a helpful tool in inspiring your own ideas about such topics, and this is something I will continue to strive for in the future. I am not shy in drawing from my own experiences and feelings so that I can build a connection to what I'm making.
