“I work a lot with the figure, often using myself and my partner as subjects to draw from. I capture brief, mundane moments from our daily lives and transform them with bold colors and illustrative stylization to reveal a charged sensory landscape.

These scene explore a range of hidden complexities from the humor of corporeal existince, to questions of belonging and the meaning of intimacy.”
