Artist’s Statement

Strangers are the most interesting people I will never know. I want that Terminator power, from the Arnold Schwarzeneggar movies—to look at someone and get a quick rundown of their issues. With instagram, I follow all these beautiful, stylish, interesting, and weird people but for the most part I don’t know anything about them, or who they really are.

I decided to create characters—personas—based on my expression and dress. Some days I look like an overworked alcoholic housewife, other days I look like that bitch who stole your best friend in high school.
