I take the feelings and situations that we find ourselves in through out our lives and put them to paper. The images describe the feelings as I have felt them, and seen others experience. And I do this so that you know that you are not alone, and someone else knows what you're going through. Hold onto hope, and embrace the process. There is beauty in the breakdown. My art has been described as surreal, there are pieces that are more realistic than others. The majority of my subjects are female, the female body is beautiful and goes through so much throughout its time, emotionally and physically and I do my best to pay homage to that.
