About the Artist

I am interested in fracturing and manipulating reality through the layering of photography and paint. The division between photo and paint begins to blur through the use of photographic ink transfers depicting staged self-portraits. This literal and symbolic act of dismantling the alternative personas I invent, challenges the traditional role of the female character and broadens the scope of women in cinematic history. The images—hazy, grainy and soft—reflect the human psyche when challenged by emotional responses to seclusion. The resulting paintings consider the possibility of emotional disorientation and the mental decay induced by loneliness, as a result of isolation and withdrawal.
