Artist Statement

Through my work, I strive to create a world that is seductively disturbing yet beautiful, alluring and interesting.  I make drawings, paintings and installations that lampoon socially-enforced objectification of the female body, dismantle common misconceptions about ethnic minorities within the United States and distort traditional perceptions of space, while visually stimulating and delighting the viewer.  Characterized by a strange marriage of the exquisite and the grotesque, the refined and the lowbrow, the fantastic and the mundane, my work analyzes contentions between the male and the female, the young and the old, the familiar and the foreign, the haves and the have-nots.  I frequently juxtapose images and objects from disparate sources in order to construct complex satires, allegories and parables.  I draw inspiration from a variety of sources including magazines, movies, music, theatrical productions, Voodoo and Santeria rituals, Tarot, palmistry, poetry and literature.
