The imagery I make explores the relationships between memory, impulse, sexuality, plants, myth, and anatomy. My creations are a place in which objects, figures, animals, patterns, flora, and fruit become cultivated landscapes of metaphor that strive to reclaim and amplify sensual agency in the body.”
