 My process utilizes traditional painting techniques together with collage, textile arts, and digital manipulation to evoke transformative states and spaces inspired by a feminine aesthetic informed by the history of women in the arts. I use mediums and materials as a substrate in a manner where they lose distinction, where each becomes the other. I then overlay images drawn from nature, the body, the written word, and my prior paintings to further the synthesis and to render the figurative in a language grounded in abstraction while creating a dynamic interplay between handmade gesture and digital operation.
