Since I was a child, I have been hyper-aware of being inside a body; I feel as though I am looking out of a container or shell. I am interested in what it feels like to live inside your container, your shell.
In my art practice, I question not only the subjective physical way we experience the world through our senses, but also our frame of reference, the cognitive way we internalize information to form opinions. My work explores the gaze and the body from a feminist perspective. I query the function and power of the image, and its role in transmitting stereotypes, drawing on Amelia Jones’ theory of its insufficiency to adequately apprehend the materiality of body. I seek to discover that which is hidden, the secret impulses and desires that drive us. I investigate memory and perspective.
During undergrad, my interest in human behavior led me to study psychology at Emory University. After college, I attended photo school, and worked as a photographer and videographer in Atlanta, NYC, and Miami.
In May 2016, I completed my MFA in Studio Art / Art + Technology. The themes of my commercial work and my art practice overlap: I am interested in the human condition.
I am currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida.
