Current series “Two Lines'' takes from my evolution into motherhood. Similar to previous artwork, motherhood comes with society's critical eye and the fear of underperforming.

The current series “Attached” uses provocative, seductive, grotesque imagery mixed with the exploration of beauty materials intersecting opposing materials. The creative process of the mixed media collage-like artworks are performative & based in the ritualistic nature of the beauty routine.
