Artist Statement

The focus of my practice is to educate my audience about rape culture through the reclamation of my body and mind, or identity, as a survivor of sexual violence.  Specifically, in terms of body dissociation, objectification, ownership of sexuality, and mental illness.  In order to translate these experiences for a viewer, I believe in promoting the agency of viewers to enact change through direct participation with my work, choice of media, and effective imagery.  To engage a wide audience, I work both inside and outside the gallery; utilizing a dedication to and working knowledge of healing practices, activism, and public art to better understand myself and my community.
