My work is about LGBTQIA+ visibility. From the birth of the modern Gay and Lesbian Liberation movement in the 1970s up until to the present day, my paintings and mixed media work have chronicled the LGBTQIA+ community’s evolution through the lens of my experiences within it. I use varied approaches and materials to examine issues particular to it, such as gender-fluidity, internal structures created to support and protect, the commodification of marginalized groups like ours, resilience during and after tragedy, and the joy of living authentically.
