Using the figure and elements of the figure, I explore human psychology, specifically focusing on mental disorders and mental well-being.  Through my work, I attempt to break down the barriers and destroy the stigmas often associated with disorders such as depression and anxiety.  My paintings, drawings, and sculptures are a means of making visible the invisible—allowing the viewer to see what might lie beneath the outer shell of someone who is suffering.

I work with various media including graphite, chalk pastel, and ceramics, but I find that working with watercolor offers a cathartic release—both mentally and physically—through its loose, unpredictable qualities, which appropriately relates to my subject matter.
