I'm an artist based in Redlands, CA. I've lived in California since I was born in 1991 and have loved making art for almost the same amount of time. I'm almost entirely self-taught, with just a few classes over time. My favorite media are drawing in graphite and ink, and painting in watercolor and acrylic, though sometimes I experiment in other media like clay sculpting or crochet, etc.

My main purpose for creating is to process something or express myself, whether it's my feelings or political ideas or some kind of media. I think art is a contribution everyone makes to the collective culture, like a conversation with the world, and everyone can bring a unique perspective if they are creating authentically. So I try to be as authentic as possible and make the art that comes to me. I find that I can't help but create honestly, and it's a bit like wearing my insides on the outside and it's very intimate and vulnerable. I pull from my experiences, for example as a queer person, a neurodivergent person, and a trauma survivor. I create art about sex, drugs, memes, politics, memories, dreams, violence, and a lot in between.

You can find me on Mastodon mostly now as I'm withdrawing gradually from Meta products and other large social media platforms.. You can also contact me by email if you have questions, comments, or requests for a product you'd like to see.

***KEEP IN MIND: the social media feeds have R-Rated/Not Safe For Work posts mixed in, on Mastodon they usually have content warnings but they're all together, not separate like the website. Use discretion.***
