Artist Statement

I am a mixed media artist with a focus on figurative oil painting that is in the realm of the political and personal. My paintings prominently feature indigenous people, mainly women, in brightly painted locations. The paintings are narrative, reference labor, the mythical and contain a combination of silhouetted forms and intricately painted details. This visual dissonance is a representation of knowing and not knowing one's history.
