is creating Digitally manipulated portraits
Focusing my practice on facets of identity like, skin color, gender, language, spirituality and sexuality I combine the psyche and physical bodies to reproduce them into what I call “portraits”.

I use forms of myself to throw the audience into a space where they are asked to recognize themselves in the image of someone else. This choice is to extract the ideas of multiple identities existing within an individual person. My work points the finger at the viewers and asks them how it is that they choose to understand these extractions.

I also use my physical body in my work to recreate myself in art, a space I felt my body was not welcomed. By doing so, I force the audience to acknowledge my existence and confront their own private thoughts of what type of bodies are allowed to exist in art.

This patreon helps me focus on creating art and starts off my career as a freelance artist.
