I am an artist living and working in Corvallis, Oregon. My main body of work aims to promote conversation about mental and emotional health issues. Using these themes, I aim to create something beautiful, ornate, and approachable, to generate a reaction to therapy and mental health issues that is more accepting in nature. Individual care for each step is valuable to my process; my work focuses on repetition. Cut, place, paint, finish. All individually, all by hand-each step in a particular order. I describe my work as painterly sculpture.
