 Trauma from a young age has shaped the way I explore creativity: innocence enveloped in a dark and uncomfortable reality of loss. Life and death intertwined, the push and pull of a new and unexplored happiness versus the comfortable and familiar grief. I sit and wait in between worlds, cautious of the next step, unsure of where it will lead me.

Thank you for viewing my work,
