My art is
ever evolving, ...
... dream-like and introspective, fraught with emotional narrative and dark undertones, yet surprisingly whimsical at times.
As a painter my work is often described as emotive and experimental. While I may actively pull on specific moments to emulate within a piece, it is when viewers seek to further explore sentiment themselves that excites me. They may not see what I was feeling, but my work can play a part in helping them illuminate understanding within themselves.
In practice I do not limit my medium, utilizing any materials that become available; from henna dye, to physical elements of a frame, or similar sources. The natural stylistic choices I make bend to whichever comes to mind at the moment, at times resulting in a whimsical but somewhat dark aesthetic.
Artistic expression had always been a factor in my life. While my own self critical perspective has in the past stifled sharing my work with the public, a new chapter in my life has been forged on eliminating internal judgement. Since then I have produced exponentially more work, and have reached numerous people with my work. A student of art history, placing my own work within a context of society is more uniquely aided by my formal education in psychology.
