Artist Statement Submitted 2016
I paint figurative objects to tell stories and demonstrate personal narratives. My work is very much autobiographical, through the reoccurring image of a safety pin. At first the safety pin symbolized an expression of manic feelings in the work. The idea evolved over time to ultimately become a reflection of myself. From its inception, I was more interested in glorifying the safety pin as an everyday object, while elevating its importance. The pins have evolved into figures that represent myself and others close to me, to convey a story, expressing personal and intimate experiences in my life.
