My work is greatly inspired by the female body and how it feels to live inside such a thing. I am consistently amazed and frustrated by the workings of the body against all attempts to mold it and control it.

Telling secrets and keeping secrets is a thread inside much of my work. The conflict of having a body that wants and does certain things without consulting you is very interesting to me. Violent primal feelings are not always appropriate when you have to function in a society with other people, so they are often buried under layers of composure and politeness. I try to cut away this emotional skin in my work. I hope to find something real underneath it.
