“These paintings focus on the strength and vulnerability of young girls. On the verge of adolescence, they are caught between the comfort of childhood and the anticipation of being “grown up.” Their bodies are changing, attracting new kinds of attention. They become women on the outside and yet remain, in many ways, child-like.

“Beneath the placid prettiness of the girls’ faces is a storm of splattered paint, mirroring the layers of emotion and the anticipation of new experiences, as well as the possibility of past experiences a viewer would not expect of someone so young. There is so much happening in the mind and body of a girl on the cusp of adulthood. This fragile, tumultuous time in a woman’s life is the foundation of my work.”
