Formally, her work is characterized by repetitive mark-making and organic forms, walking a fine line between abstraction and ornamentation. Amoeba-like forms that feel bodily or even cellular hover in indeterminate spaces inhabited by clusters of tally-keeping dashes and squiggles.

“My work reflects on my personal battles with depression, anxiety, and a 20+ year struggle with an eating disorder,” she writes. “I aim to provide a contemplative space for introspection and empathy, shedding light on these often-hidden battles, and offering solace and insight to those who share similar struggles.”
