Currently, I’m working with the theme of the silenced and maligned women in Greek mythology—women who lived under the weight of being labeled evil seductresses and monsters, often exiled or killed. Traditionally the Sphinx in Greek mythology is portrayed as treacherous and merciless, A deadly predator who will kill and eat those who cannot answer her riddle, most famously in Oedipus.

My work questions outdated fantasies surrounding the female characters and looks at deeper possibilities of survival, family dynamics, and stepping into the power of the true self. 

 In college, I studied Greek mythology, stories that feel very close to the dream state: nonlinear, poetic, violent, filled with strange creatures, and bigger than life. My sculpture relates to unconscious concepts, reflecting our secret fears and desires.
