TEENAGE KICKS, named after the pop punk song by The Undertones, alludes to the cheeky childhood delights of the artist’s youth. Her surrealistic imagery and sugar-coated palette in the series transports the viewer into a faraway fantasy during this peculiar season of social distancing. The drawings were created, in part, with the playfully somber idea to, “draw as if you only had six months to live,” indicating the juxtaposition of darkness yet permissiveness to create as if there’s no tomorrow.

“I hide in the metaphorical bushes and wait for my subconscious to nibble at it.”
