I strive to provide an easy entry into my work with the accessible familiarity of the realistically rendered human form while portraying what I find to be the unnerving tension created between a woman’s strength and vulnerability. I think it can be found in the simplest moment – a glance, a turn of the head, a hand clasping a familiar object.
I try not to overthink a pose or composition because it can quickly lose its authenticity or vitality. I want to capture fleeting moments so I am learning to trust my instincts. Each piece is ultimately carefully executed but where my work has its greatest success, it comes from trusting that flash of a thought.
