I create colorfully titillating work revolving around the body, food, and sexuality. Pleasure, desire, and sensory stimulation are activated through opportunities for transformative and emotive experiences. I engage these ideas through the interplay of suggestive forms, materials, colors, and textures, resulting in strangely beautiful and oddly satisfying pieces and installations. Palpable and personal memories of things innocent and erotic, tasty and visceral, intimate and shared, are regurgitated and reinterpreted through an intuitive process that results in each candy colored morsel. Shame and awkwardness are sugarcoated with a provocative playfulness and sensuality is nuanced with humor. The alluring components and scenes are amalgamations of both the foreign and the familiar and can be interpreted as both micro and macro, internal and external, corporeal and temporary, coalescing in decadent fantasyscapes brimming with delectable offerings.
