My work is a reflection of my steady journey toward self-understanding as I reconnect with my roots. My pieces are often uncensored documentations of my most vulnerable moments of growth, change and discovery. I recognize that my voice, in all of its many forms has been the basis of my survival and ability to thrive. Through creating, I explore my relationships with my identities while actively striving toward artistic and cultural preservation for my peoples.
