Abstract

My artwork is motivated by my desire to express and discover myself in relation to my identity, processing my negative emotions, and to make commentary about social issues that concern me. It is important for my art to leave a lasting impact on the viewer because I want them to think more deeply about the social and societal issues that my work addresses. I especially focus on issues relating to gender, identity, LGBT rights, mental health, and interpersonal relationships. These topics are important to me because they directly relate to my own life. By making art about issues that I directly relate to, I am able to work from my own emotions and experiences through art, I can talk about the issues that are important to me with more than just my words.
