I make joyful 2D and installation art to address cruelty in the world. I use traditional methods in one medium to create innovation in another, cross-purposing tools from printmaking, sculpture, painting, tailoring and dentistry. My work transcends boundaries between whimsical forms and critical ideas.

I create lighthearted environments in which to contemplate politically charged imagery – guns, rainbows, and reproductive organs that can be read as male, female, or both. I hope that experiencing familiar impulses in new surroundings will educate our emotions and influence a comprehensive reconsideration of how we see the world, each other, and ourselves.
