My artwork reflects who we are on our best days: sure-footed explorers, ready to take on the world with clean lines and bold, confident colors. It is meant to stand out and so should we. On our worst days, these playful, yet sophisticated designs are ready to empower us with the courage to accept ourselves wholeheartedly in a world that never stops trying to fix us.
We are not broken.
As rough and incomplete as we may be, we are still enough. Right now. Today. Exactly as we are.
I believe that our hearts and minds listen to, and believe, the words we say and the imagery we take in. I believe that choosing to be vulnerable and unapologetically oneself requires bravery. I create acrylic paintings on canvas that exist to affirm the message that we are all imperfect and we are all worthy of love and belonging.
