Her passion is in process art, using her practice as an outlet for emotion and experience.

We live in a world where I, as a female, feel overwhelmed by surrounding pressures which has led to positions of low self esteem and a sense of desperation, particularly how it relates to the way I feel that women are treated in our society. This work was created as a personal therapeutic outlet, as a relatable work of art for the countless other women in my shoes, as well as to allow for a space to promote and highlight this pervasive societal injustice. This work allows the viewer a portal into someone’s life. A woman suffering under the pressures and expectations of society and the negative impact that that has on oneself and on the people around them. The irony being in her ability to care for the life around her but not being able to care for herself.

I created work that portrays strong emotions, personally, and societally represents and perhaps confronts the "traditional duties" of women. I definitely think hands tell the story of human beings and are very powerful imagery when representing the human subject. The dark colour scheme offers a sense of drama that one would not usually associate with such mundane, simple tasks.

This image portrays a visceral reaction of pain as the viewer can imagine the moment before squeezing a cactus with the spikes ready to enter the flesh. This picture is meant to make the viewer feel uncomfortable as they imagine the pain felt in this depiction. I think the cactus also looks almost phallic, a symbolism I used to depict the "woman's duty to pleasure".

This image portrays a hug, representing feelings of love and comfort as well as the "woman's duty to nurture".

For me, squeezing a sponge is gross. Even looking at this image gives me a very visceral reaction. From a societal point of view, the sponge represents the "woman's duty to clean".

I focus a lot on the hands which are able to powerfully tell a story of an individual. I represent different stages of life and the different lessons and feelings that can be connoted within them.

'Living' features an adult hand reaching through the growing foliage, connoting the lessons, growth, and beauty acquired through living a life.
