I work with the human figure (or photograph a Barbie doll as it represents the human figure). I create "digital originals" drawing directly onto an iPad Pro of a life model(s), which I often combine with my photography and paintings make collages. When I finish a piece I either output the work onto fabric, paper, metal, or another substrate. Sometimes I make life-size or larger scale prints on fabric. My style is graphic, sensual, and fluid. It conveys my feminist agenda. The figures feel intimate, natural, and personal. These are powerful people. My drawings of women (mostly) come across as strong, decisive, confident, and unique individuals – this is my underlying narrative.
