My work explores womxn identity and its relationship to society. By using mixed media  I aim to illustrate the abusive misrepresentations of womxn in popular media. I explore topics such as sexism, beauty standards, domestic obligations, womanhood, sexuality, and gender norms.

My work is informed by childhood memories, film and video art, feminist art and theory, as well as everyday observations of society. I strive to wholly embrace calculated spontaneity, experimentation, and wonder; often illustrating complex themes through humor, vivid color palettes, abstract characters, and immersive fictional worlds.

My goal is to create a space for progress to happen. That space is a colorful, experimental, and eccentric, generating unique thought around representations of womxn, for womxn.
