I am a queer feminist artist. I create meaningful and provocative work about women and gender non-conforming people’s bodies, emotions and roles in our world. My goal is to facilitate an important narrative about how we view our bodies, and what we can do to clear the way for feminist growth.
My personal inspirations to become a body positive artist began with my own healing after leaving a sexually abusive relationship. In my painting series, Self Growth (2019-2020), I explored self-portraiture as a means to reclaim my body and space. Since then, my work has reached far outside of my own personal experiences, and into talking to the collective experiences of those affected by the patriarchy
I include things in my work that would typically be otherwise hidden, stigmatized or hyper-sexualized. Body casting became a way to include others stories and experiences in a truly raw and unaltered way.
