Artist Statement

My work deals with aspects of the cultural mutism and marginalization of the female voice. Working from the perspective of both artist and muse, I challenge the notion of authorship, by siding with both content creation and becoming the content itself. Props intended to stifle recur in my work as symbols designed to blatantly mirror back to a culture our awareness and outright dissent.
