Statement

My work confronts and celebrates repressed topics, mainly bathroom and death rituals. Offering a lighthearted approach to these subjects through interdisciplinary mediums, I encourage conversation and acceptance. I am seeking answers as I navigate my own conflicting emotions toward these topics. My studio work offers a window into this internal conflict; a chaotic and honest expression of my complicated relationship with mortality. I work with mainly found materials and draw upon their impermanence. My materials are prone to rot, and my work is not made to last. My pieces are fragile, just as our bodies are.
