Artist Statement: I strive to make work that is colorful and full of life, regardless of the subject matter presented. I use my work to create my own visual language in which I can comfortably discuss matters such as anxieties, social media, and gender. I am inspired by 1990s cartoons, the 1930s rubberhose animation style, vintage technology, and fashion and makeup trends from the last sixty years.
