My work currently explores the effects of Evangelical Purity culture on the secular and religious realms. I depict moments of potential action with the self and with others, highlighting the push and pull between the divine mind and the wants of the flesh. I raise questions pertaining to myself and society in this journey of sexual freedom. As a woman am I able to choose when I am seen as sexual? Does this public act of displaying my sensuality relinquish my control of it? Can a woman’s sexuality ever be celebrated free of scrutiny?
