"My art is a way for me to process the world and my place in it. As a self-taught painter and visual artist, I explore a variety of mediums and techniques to express different themes, but always in relation to my internal experience within a larger social construct. I love acrylics and collage for abstractions that represent the challenges and strengths of a life that deviates from the neurotypical. Watercolours are my go-to portrait medium, where I examine the impacts of global issues on daily life. No matter what the medium, I always combine a bold, vibrant palette with loose layering, and intuitive mark-making, to bring together big pictures and intimate details. Painting is a way for me to examine the subjective and the objective, it gives me a visual voice to process perceived difficulties and to transmute them into strong and pretty things."
