The exploration of color, especially in the perception and interruption of personal emotions towards the subject, drives my artistic production. I primarily work in mixed media, both in painting & drawing. With the inundation of rich saturated color, I challenge viewers to question societal stereotypes of identity, gender, and the other factors that often divide us.
This germane aspect of my art work is derived from my personal experience of being stereotyped throughout my youth. Essentially, I strip away that option by replacing it with different colors that do not identify skin tones. With puzzle like configurations I assemble faces and figures to let the audiences decipher and interact with each piece.
