My work explores themes of stoicism, mortality, and feminine self-image in surreal isolation. I focus on figures and faces, idealized and emotionally neutral, given meaning through color and symbol juxtaposition. I rely on a deeply personal and integral research process, creating from my own immersion in studies of mysticism, global folklore, and psychology. My work is reflective of my constantly evolving self-image, informed by my experience with EMDR therapy, dream analysis, and ongoing spiritual unfoldment.
I am a self-taught painter from Oklahoma. Watercolor and acrylic are my primary media. For me, creativity is a means of exploring both conscious and subconscious elements of self, identity, and existential reality through symbolism and allegory. My work is shaped by my Nishnabe (Potawatomi) tribal heritage, my long enduring fascination with global religions and mythologies, and my interest and education in psychology.
