My art is a band-aid that doesn't hurt to rip off. Dreamy, colorful, a conceptual fantasy world, the marriage of history and identity. By intertwining my art with personal experiences as a queer, gender non-conforming individual, I explore, disencumber, and celebrate the hardships and tension felt by many who have felt excluded and oppressed. Most importantly, my work offers insightful and inclusive alternatives for a more vibrant future
