"Saturated, warm-hued mists materialize into a fantasy realm featuring humans, plants, and various interspecies hybrids in my artworks. Exploring the intersection between the spiritual and the erotic, these paintings, drawings, and ceramic works envision feminine-centered pleasure which is playful, humorous, and self-aware in its bold vulnerability.
Color bleeds, erupts, and seduces in chromophilic marks and washes. Creatures and animals feature as avatars of the self and chaotic modes of being. Confident lines and quick swirls of paint assert the erotic as power—a tender kind—that belongs first and foremost to the self and one’s inner world."
