Artist statement

My art practice is about feminism in modern society. It is looking at issues of censorship, especially the difference between male and female censorship on social media, and in everyday life, inspired by the free the nipple movement. My work looks at multiples as a way to desensitize the viewer and come in direct contact with the taboo of the female body, focusing largely on nipples and vulvas.
