My work is an exploration of sexual identity, layered with personal narratives, seductive textures, off-color humor, and bodily angst.

I identify myself as a painter, though I allow the work to cross over into the more physical realm of sculpture when necessary: therefore, the work has the potential to take on a third dimension or depart from the wall as a freestanding form. I typically begin a piece with only an idea for a shape, which is then developed through a series of drawings, monotypes, and painted sketches. I know a piece is finished when it turns me on visually.
