Statement

My experience of metamorphosis as a transgender person permeates my practice, and so my sculptures act as a tangible story of transformation. I stitch together my queer identity with “women’s work” by combining the figure, self-portraiture, and wearables through the use of textiles and beadwork. By reimagining some of my favorite childhood characters and toys, I utilize a playful nostalgia while traversing my sexuality and gender. Treating myself as both subject and armature, I alleviate the tension between my body, psyche, and desires.
