Inspired by folklore, 90's cartoons, decay, travels, pineapples, cacti, vaginas and the occult, my work weaves sugar, spice and everything nice, with trash, filth and decay, to create a world that is equally inviting and perturbed. In doing so, these two concepts mirror each other, feed into one another, and finally become one another. A place where the macabre shines through sugarcoated illusions, and what was once discarded is rebirthed into nuanced beauty.
