The foundations of my paintings are composed of images that I take during my everyday life, pulling from television, social media, and my physical environment. Working in modes of both representation and mutation, I use paint to meld images together, creating fractured and distorted realities. Through the manipulation of these images, my work touches on themes of gender, intimacy, consumerism, and power.
