In my art practice I am interested in exploring themes of feminism, popular culture and aesthetic, personal branding, and self awareness. I use a wide range of media in my practice to investigate and reflect my sense of self identity, place, and voice in a patriarchal capitalist society. I am interested in using playfulness, humor, and parody to explore more difficult themes of identity and misogyny; commonly through use of colour, self portraiture, and text. My most recent body of work, PROFESSIONAL WOMAN, explores and critiques misogyny, sexist and oppressive systems and microaggressions within modern professional spaces.
