Lives and works in San Antonio, Texas.
My practice is centered around the construction of narrative as a vehicle for the presentation of formative personal experience. The narratives I work with are based in the confrontation of humor and trauma, and engage with conversations of art historical practice, feminine experience, and the anxiety of human embodiment. I explore painting as both a mode of construction and deconstruction in these narratives; the abstracted and simplified quality of my paint application hides the event from the viewer as much as it presents the content for viewing.
