I’m a multidisciplinary artist born and based in New York City. I was exposed to an absurd array of dramatic and visual arts growing up, perhaps triggering my perceiving of the world in expressive rather than logical ways. A lot of the darkness we face throughout life targets the deepest parts of ourselves, and to me, many of the deepest parts of myself are bound to my childhood. So, I’ve become interested in exploring adult concepts through a playful lens. It’s strange being alive these days and that’s quite inspiring. There’s a lot to think about, there’s a lot to feel about, but there’s even more to do. My works may offend, they may inspire, perhaps even disappoint, but hopefully they’ll provoke something, anything. Be it internal or external; a thought or actions.

In Your Head
An exploratory series on mental health and states of mind.
Often the thoughts we think to ourselves are made up of so many other factors besides our own mind. This trio of mixed media works are illustrations of states of mind and the creatures that occupy our heads that are beyond ourselves. Self doubt, insecurity, shame, anxiety. These are all things that frequently have origins in others’ mouths and minds before they are in our own. Perhaps identifying and embodying these outsourced notions can help us eventually overcome them.
Pulling from the experiences I’ve gathered in my nigh quarter century spent alive, I aim to investigate the worlds within and around me through camp, sarcasm, and humor. And as a young queer white woman, my goal isn’t to endear myself or explain myself but to simply bear myself. The pieces I create are attempts at illustrating a thought or feeling or experience I’ve found fascinating, and typically have to do with mental health, femininity, queerness, and privilege. I hope to shine a light on the unremarkable in a remarkable way; the things we take for granted are often the things least explored.
