My work has been expansive in the study of various artistic disciplines. I use a pool of imagery derived from the figure and forms associated as culturally feminine to communicate concepts through narrative association. Designs are inspired by nature and explore themes such as growth, disease, preservation, and fertility. The Target Practice series was created to reflect current changes in law and the significance it carries for women’s reproductive rights. These pieces depict figures captured in site of a weapon, or more accurately the eye of the politician. Regardless of perspective, the bloodied flowers represent the harm that may result from continuing political trends.
