Maker of Things
My work is informed by anything and everything that catches my eye. I am inspired by dark themes and gothic art, the natural world, life and death.
Sometimes it's mixed media collage of natural elements like bones and flowers together in 3-D formats.
Sometimes it is colored pencils or ink on paper.
Sometimes I can't help but rip up paper and images and slap them together into a collage.
Sometimes I'm snapping photographs.
Sometimes I write words.
I live in a body filled with anxiety and self-doubt. The process of creation helps me to ground and grow through those negative feelings and to connect with the beauty of the world. My internal landscape shapes the work I create, like a visual dairy of my emotions.
I adore contrast - I like to play with soft and hard lines, dark and light, big and small. I love juxtaposition and incongruous ideas. All at once I am both horrific and beautiful and my art is my attempt to express those feelings.
