Juxtapoz Magazine Interview
"I am obsessed with household textures and objects—furniture, blankets, towels, bath mats, rugs, socks, etc. I add layers and layers of latex paint onto soft objects that soak it in and fossilize into solid forms."
"Colors choices are usually based on the context of what is around and trying to create the most contrast and visual force possible."
"I prefer words like provocative and precarious, psychological, nauseating, inundating, confrontational, luscious, alive, awkward, rhythmic as well as more direct thematic words like feminine, domestic, material culture, home, interiority, etc. I kind of hate when the work is reduced to the formal and abstract, which are present but not prevailing. One of my favorite comments recently was when someone said that the work is “mischievous."

"I don’t plan paintings out in a traditional way, I need to remain super open and shed boundaries so I can be ready for the next move."
"I’ve always related to the concept of synesthesia. My earliest work dealt a lot with that idea. Color comes supernaturally to me, I see it without trying. I exist in a pretty open emotional space, both of these things just happen so I just let it work for me."
