My work is a celebration of femininity and sexuality while also bringing attention to feminist issues. By combining the ideas of the nude Venus with the femme fatale, I depict women that are sexual on their own terms, giving them the position of power. Within the illustrations and paintings there are pastel color palettes and a mix of mediums that are associated with women's work and are often undervalued.  Throughout history women have been seen as passive objects of the male gaze. The needlework, decorative glitters, fabrics, and floral imagery emphasize femininity while the active poses defy old standards. Ultimately my work questions power roles in society.
