Hailey, Idaho, United States
I am a multimedia artist working mostly in acrylic, gouache and pastel, as well as plaster casting, encaustic, and glass. I am always exploring complex global topics, including the transgender movement, health care systems, and recently the pandemic. These topics have fueled my emotional and expressionist creation. I am influenced by the early German and Neo-expressionist movement and the surrealists. The former inspires a deeper investigation of the nuances of contemporary society, the latter helps me translate personal and societal struggles onto canvas. After the suicide of my beloved, I took on the topics of death and mortality in my work. However, I do not want to get stuck in the narrative of negativity, but hope to transcend it by expressing the beauty, and sometimes the comedy and terror of such grim circumstances.
