My work is a part of me, a self-portrait of sorts, though not always directly. I explore interiority and exteriority in emotions and persona. How a person looks on the outside is not how they appear on the

inside always. I am also interested in masking and camouflage, and how parts of myself remain

hidden. I like layering these hidden and exposed parts on top of each other through moments of

collage and glazed layers of paint.

Isolation is also an important part of my work - autism and

mental health issues can feel so isolating and difficult to interact with the world. My hope is that

by being vulnerable about my identity, others can relate to the experiences of feeling like an

outsider, in whichever way that may present itself
