Wet Paintbrushes

I make paintings that narrate my own lived experience as a queer/lesbian artist; they are a synthesis of my day-to-day life. My most recent work concerns itself with the idea of endings. 


Headless figures and disembodied limbs exist alongside everyday objects in a world saturated with oil paint. This liminal space between the real and the imagined and past and the present is where my work often lies.
