From her bio:

My practice works within the concepts of social consumption and guilty pleasure.  The paintings combine all the great qualities of abstract painting, with a crude autobiography through recognizable objects, symbols and icons; represented by stickers, iron-on jersey numbers, smiley faces, etc. Abstract Expressionism is a point of reference to my pieces; I use it as a means of displaying the traditional painters mark. My paintings are a product of binge-watching Sex and the City and the history behind when glob of paint is applied to the surface. Interrogating what is means to be a painter while consuming culture that is known as the guilty pleasure, my paintings have a push and pull between playfulness and sophistication.
