ARTIST'S STATEMENT

In my work, I explore themes of trauma, spirituality, and healing. I am interested in both the physical body and the subconscious mind, represented through viscerally painted figures interacting with imagined landscapes that are both ethereal and slightly disturbing. My experience as a trauma informed yoga instructor, practitioner of yoga and meditation practice helps to inform my process.

 

Through my own experiences, I explore the effects of trauma on the body and the subconscious. As a trauma informed yoga instructor & long time practitioner of yoga, I have a deep understanding of the connection between the mind & the body, and how the strengthening of that connection brings healing. My practice and teaching of yoga over the past 6 years has deepened my understanding and relationship with my own body and spirit, and helped me and continues to help me move through and heal from trauma.

My art serves as a reflection of the inner workings of my subconscious, and works hand in hand with my yoga practice as a tool and resource for me to process through trauma, which I see as an unavoidable aspect of the human condition and essential for a deeper & more full understanding of life.
