Other paintings are inspired by high school homecoming and prom queens. Throughout my whole life I’ve always been the geek. Imagining myself as one of these princesses was a challenging role-reversal. High school royalty to me is a regal artificiality. In these paintings am making over versions of myself like paper dolls with different hair styles and dresses. The sugary fun of the princess exploration is contrasted with an agitated background of repetitious swirls.
