My works focus on people and the experiences we share—specifically, the ways in which we hide ourselves from each other, despite an innate and profound desire to connect. I work with translucencies and layering and pair loose ink and water paintings with intricate graphite drawings to create visual hazes of organic portraiture. Through this technique, I convey the complexity of our natures and the messy, strange, transcendent, and luminous experience of being.
