Artists Statement

 

I am an inter- disciplinary artist and illustrator.  My work primarily explores queerness while critiquing the archetypal models of gender, sexuality, fluidity and body presentation.  I work with pen, ink, pencil, watercolor, gouache, collage, and paper, in my practice as a graphic storyteller.  I use personal experience as a queer, genderqueer, visually female presenting, and aspiring androgyne, to carve out space for marginalized voice.  The mainstream comic book industry is dominated by hetero normative white males making queer comics that much more essential in preserving our stories for future generations.

 

As a visual artist I seek to create my own magical, thought provoking, sexually fluid, wonderland with my paintings.

 

I currently reside in Sacramento, California with my two adorable dogs.
