Mid-sentence is an introspective exhibition comprised of several bodies of work. Each series explores a different moment in time significant to her journey.

Dipping in between real and surreal imagery, the intricately detailed portraits are inspired by personal experiences, yet invite the viewer to construct their own narrative.
