Within making, I am seeking a release of the internalized weight we repress day to day. We live in a culture of oversaturation and stimulation where we are taught to exhaust ourselves for capital gain, consistently told we don’t have enough. I create work to initiate conversation and action around wealth inequality, the violence inherent to gentrification, community rooted trauma, and harm reduction. I use tools and symbols of oppressive forces within my work to navigate these items outside of original intent in a new and balanced context.
