"My work probes human experience, intimacy and identity. I work by responding to a distinct inquiry, usual discovered within my own experience, such as the mechanisms of anxiety, or the destruction & creation of identity.
I also find inquiry in historic events, such as protest or journey accounts, telling stories of the past that reflect and inspect the present.
My work is rooted in embracing vulnerability, fostering connection and finding joy in the unexpected. I aim to create tender, magical experiences that evoke contemplation and provoke gentle, radical change."
