My current work combines painting and hand needle punched rugs to create dynamic diptychs. Conceptually my work revolves around themes of voyeurism, privacy, and individual projection of self-image through their spaces. How we are perceived and how we perceive others make up a lot of our lives and I am interested in deconstructing this through my work that presents ambiguous spaces that are simultaneously familiar and yet impersonal and unknown.
