My main source of visual inspiration is the human form. I’m most attracted to subjects that are natural and convey strength and resilience. By focusing on the emotional expression of the human body, I am able to create a narrative about its connection to our psyche. 

My art explores themes of duality, distortion and uncertainty to draw a contrast between conflicting elements. Purity and falseness, real and unreal - I am to highlight how duality works to create a whole. The goal of my work is to encourage the viewer to be curious, open-minded and expansive about how we decide what to accept as "right" and truthful.
