Artist's Statement

 I am not one and simple, but complex and many.                                           -- Virginia Woolf, The Waves


My work explores the complex and often fragmentary nature of identity through portraits and abstract 

Over the past year I have been drawing and painting young adults who are identity fluid and genderqueer. One of these subjects is my child, others are their friends.  All have all generously trusted me to document and depict them. It has felt like an intimate conversation, at once vulnerable and guarded.
