Power, ethics, grief, relationships, despair, hope, technology, class, imagination, activism, body, voice, agency, gratitude, and meaning.
These are just some of the themes I tackle in my work. Ultimately, my drive is to create with integrity, vulnerability, and beauty.
Plus, my current philosophy is to play the hand you have, even if you scheme to get another— which pretty much ensures constant (mis)adventures and therefore new art!
