"I love hair. It’s funny though, because I spend way more time creating it then taking care of my own. I find it much easier to draw a ridiculous mane on a dancing woman with bear shoulders than it is to comb through my knots. I like to cover eyes to leave a sense of mystery in the image as well. Eyes are so personal.
Many people identify my work as 100% drawing, but the bodies and faces in my images are actually collaged from photographs. I started by taking images of my friends, and have since began combining my own photography with found images. In almost all of my work, you’re not looking at one woman who actually exists. I make each girl with fragments of bodies and portraits. Working that way gives me the freedom to create an entirely new human being, and body shape. In any given image, you may be looking at the parts of 3-5 different people. I focus mainly on the female form, because it’s the perfect canvas."
