My work serves as content through which to explore technique, formal concerns, and experimentation. My process is rooted in drawing, but I bring new perspectives to each work by experimenting with the materiality of painting, printmaking, and photography. I explore different approaches to portraiture with larger themes of community and intimacy, reflecting on the relationships between the artist in space, the artist and model, the artist as a teacher, and the artist in collaboration. I believe that the viewer is as interesting as the artist, and therefore I am particularly interested in artwork that gives the viewer agency. I believe that critical ideas in fine art should be presented with as much intellectual accessibility as possible to the general public.
