During my studies I started ,at first, to just experiment with mediums and play. Growing up I was never encouraged to look at art as a career but as I kept spending more time at the art building the more I started to realize that I had to make art making and part of my life.

In one of my drawing classes we had to bring in an object that we found boring an a piece of paper taller than we were . I brought in a Q-tip and a piece of paper that was about 5 foot by 4 foot, from that point on I very much enjoyed working on that scale. The point of the exercise was to take this boring object and make it something that was interesting to look at .

I really enjoy mixing mediums and seeing how different styles and mediums interact with each other . For this pieces I had some coffee grounds laying around and an old stale cup of coffee so I grabbed a brush and started painting and spilling the coffee on the paper and added texture with the coffee grounds.

A number for my works became very centered on the female form. Especially after taking a few figure drawing classes. This when I started to really see the power in creating and self expression. 

Continuing with the female form I started to experiment with using tools and mediums in different ways. In this piece I wanted to see if I could make paint look like stone but o a 2D surface. So I used a pallet knife and lots of layers of acrylic paint to create this image.

Here I started to mix different mediums together and build on the idea of blending 2D with 3D. In this series I took very well known depictions of Venus and turned them on their head. I called this series The Tartification of Venus.

Near the end of my University days and with a lot of encouragement from my professors, i started to use past traumas in my work. I did a series of photographs that dealt with sexual trauma and it was the first time I had given over creative control to someone else.
