In high school, every girl wore a socially engineered uniform of Frankie B Jeans with a Juicy Couture jacket and Chanel Glasses. In high school. When I moved
to Boston for college the uniform was different,

more preppy, more North Face, Pollo. More college sweatshirts. When I studied abroad Junior year in Venice, Italy, again the uniform was different. Think
big fake-diamond earrings, puffy shiny jackets, slicked back hair. I began to see people as walking reflections of their environment. In my art studio in Giudecca, a small island in the Venetian lagoon, I shined colored lights on my models and painted them to explore
how our environments shine on us, impacting how we self-identify and how others see us. I trained myself to paint colorful skin-tones that at once looked completely realistic yet utterly synthetic.

The “Dolls” series is a nod to the synthetic — I’m painting stylized caricatures of my environment. At once fun and “extra”, I also wanted to show
the depth underneath these dolls’ stylized exteriors.
