I am a Tampa-based artist whose work challenges preconceived ideas of cultural identity through the combination of classical baroque elegancies and urban contemporary inspired fashion styles. Through a mix of a diverse and often problematic array of materials within painting and sculpture, my aim is to represent human complexity and creative expression. All things possible at all times. I build up layer upon layer of patterns, textures, and specific color combinations to examine ideas of beauty, excess, and decadence simultaneously. Invention takes form through the merging of oil paint with ceramics and faux hair with weaved fabric, wood and found objects.
