Artist Statement

Relationships and identities appear at the forefront of my work, but not the ones you’d normally expect. Exploring identity is an important aspect of my life and my writing, and this is shown through the powerful women and queer characters that I create. Their stories are direct, invasive, and raw while they endeavor to live their truth, something I strive to do daily.
