I am multidisciplinary artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA. I am an outspoken advocate for body positivity and destigmatizing addiction. My work has been shown in galleries, retail shops, and corporate centers in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs. I have experience working with clients recovering from addiction and eating disorders.
my boudoir photography
The weight of diet culture and body comparison is crushing. We are taught to believe that only idealized body types deserve love and attention. My #1 priority is safety in regards to my clients’ body and mind and am committed to providing a space for my clients to exist in their bodies as they are, at any size. And when it comes to bodies, I LOVE THEM - Every roll, shape, shadow, and bump take center stage in my photographs.
My paintings are mean to bridge the gap between events of my past and the way that I perceive them today. My work is a memoir of my experiences with addiction, trauma, and mental illness. Each piece is intuitive, cathartic, and unplanned; characteristically involving chaotic swatches of color to illustrate loss of control and detailed lines. The large, fluid pools of color illustrate a loss of control, while the meticulous linear work on top symbolizes the obsession and commitment that goes with trying to cover impulsiveness and shame. There is so much emotional energy and concentration put into each piece, making it undeniably authentic and true.
