Artist Statement:

I’ve always been interested in the multiplicity of the human experience. I believe that we exist in so many ways, and it’s our duty to honor it. As an artist, that manifests in both form and content. My work often finds itself at the intersection of personal experience and social justice. As those topics are vast, my work finds itself in many corners.The form it takes, whether it be a character, an essay, a poem, etc is not so much about choice for me, but rather a belief that things land where they are supposed to land.  I’m interested in creation.  I believe that art is resistance. I believe that art is a creator of empathy. I believe that art and artists are necessary, and I believe that art is a revolutionary tool.
