About the Artist

I live in Pensacola, Florida and I am currently pursuing my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art with a focus on painting and printmaking at the University of West Florida. 

 

 


Artist's Statement

My work as whole represents my own reflections on societal issues, primarily those concerning body issues and gender division, as well as the physicality and physiognomy of the body and a being’s relationship with it. These subjects are largely translated through my lithographs, image transfers, and gestural oil paintings. I am currently preparing for a solo exhibition in December of 2013.
