About

Hi, y'all! I am a a queer, transgender, nonbinary, and mixed-race interdisciplinary artist who has shapeshifted through many mediums. 

One major project that I am working on is a picture book featuring nonbinary people of color celebrating our authenticity and belonging. As a young person, I didn’t have the words to explain the big feelings I had about my identity and relationships. It is so important for us to see ourselves reflected in media in real and nuanced ways, but there are still very few picture books featuring gender diverse characters. Right now, I am in the process of reaching out to agents in the hopes of getting this book published.

I also create paintings, poems, interactive installations, dance/performance art, stop-motion animation, and pop ups. I love working with paper, drawing monsters, and moving my body. I'm a little rusty, but I want to get back into video, installation, and social practice art. And I'd love to collaborate on projects with other QTPOC artists (I'm looking at you choreographers and music producers!) One of my big goals is 50 patrons or $500/month, so that I can pay stipends to collaborators. For the time being I am super down to do work trades with Seattle-based artists (especially BIPOC folx!)

Thank you so much for supporting my practice!
