I was made to make. It is through making that I am coming to know myself - art as autobiographical, memoir and to-do list combined.

I find myself painting the same thing multiple times - on different canvases or on the same one. I am finding repetition a useful methodology for discovery and self examination. Currently, I find the layering of many media on the canvas as a way to physically build or manifest the layered meaning compelling - though I am partial to the layering of oils over watercolor paint.

My work has evolved rapidly over the last 6 months in particular. For quite a long time I was just working with watercolor and occasionally ink. I have now begun making pieces that combine acrylic, watercolor, oil paint, graphite and oil bars.

I am currently working on 5 projects and open to commissions.

Paintings: 
  • From the Negatives - Examining where you were to define where I am
    • A series of paintings based on my fathers photographs
  • Masculinity and/(in?) the body 
    • an examination of (mostly my own) trans* bodies and ways in which they are desirable
  • A new Tarot deck and Oracle Card companion
    • Currently compiling meanings and symbology to theme with - leaning towards an "Urbanity" kind of theme
Photography 
  • I've recently scanned all my dads work to digital files. So I'm not only editing them but finding a lot of imagery to either try and rephotograph or to paint in his work. 
  • Generally just falling down the rabbit hole of a new art / visual language.
My book ? // Youtube 
  • I'll just say that 2019 has a fair share of significant anniversaries for me and I want to capture that in a particular way. If you want to know more you'll have to become a patron.

Life In Transition Podcast
  • Oh man I love this thing. I love podcasts in general. like the audio of a story hmmmm yes. I don't really know if people are listening yet - like there are numbers on anchor but I don't know what they really mean so I may just be shouting into the abyss - I'd like to know if I was or not. [SHRUG] 
  • Anyway I've got a few things lined up w the pod so we will see what happens!
