I work with the human figure (or photograph a Barbie doll as it represents the human figure). I create "digital originals", drawing live models directly onto an iPad Pro, which I often combine with my photographs and paintings to make collages. When I finish a piece I either output the work onto fabric, paper, metal, or another substrate. Sometimes I make life-size or larger scale prints on fabric. My style is graphic, sensual, and fluid. It conveys my feminist agenda. The figures feel intimate, natural, and personal. These are powerful people. My drawings of women (mostly) come across as strong, decisive, confident, and unique individuals – this is my underlying narrative.
