I’m a queer artist and Philadelphia native, advocating for marginalized populations in my community. As an aspiring art therapist, I use...

My works are intimate responses to my need to express my identity as a queer person. I strive to demonstrate what it feels like to be a member of the LGBTQ+ community and the struggle to find your place in the world. As an aspiring art therapist, I strive to incorporate healing through self-expression while I create. By focusing on personally significant topics, I find solace in my works. To remain authentic, I choose materials that feel right and can facilitate specific therapeutic needs. This method allows me to experience catharsis and gain greater self-understanding. People often try to sweep the voices of LGBTQ+ individuals under the rug. Because of this, I continue to create an unapologetic body of work that addresses the narratives of LGBTQ+ people and self-acceptance.
