Artist statement “My subject matter often portrays women: powerful demigods, real life dolls, femme fatales, and mythological figures. Influenced by the Greek mythology, The Iliad and the Odyssey and my own self-reflection, my women transcend time. These heroic dolls portray moments of divine intervention, decision-making, and the process of my own personal life”.


Influences: Van Gogh, Matisse, Max Beckman, Willem de Kooning, Frida Kahlo, Gauguin.
