Through a repetitive and intuitive process, I create visceral, ambiguous sculptures. I am influenced by the goth aesthetic, creating work which contrasts the alluring and attractive with the repulsive and grotesque. A sensation of familiarity shrouds the sculptures challenges what is known or unknown, living or decaying, with intent to simultaneously comfort and unsettle. My process forces me to surrender myself to materiality—as bulbous forms and cavernous areas emerge, I react and respond through building, stuffing, carving, and dripping. Miniature works allow for a greater sense of play, as I embellish the works with found and owned objects referring to my adolescent self. Underneath these imposing “monsters’” whimsical skins, an unnerving emotional weight is revealed which holds no absolutes. These forms serve as a mirror of my identity—exposing internal existential anxieties and grief, yet adorned by a luxurious, candy-colored shell
