My art is primarily about protection. Everything in my art is something protecting me or something I want to protect. Its people who are close to me. Bodies I feel connected to, ones that I feel have carried me and have also been a burden. My armor is something I think about people wearing. Not the armor I paint itself, but the ways people put up barriers and defenses, for better or for worse. My art is about coping with things that are difficult, but still finding optimism and whimsy in life. It is a bit naive but completely independent. It is about strength and vulnerability, identity and exploration.
