my work as a painter centers around overlaps between queerness, ex-catholicism, and ecology. my experience being raised catholic and also growing up as a queer person has informed my practice, which is an evolving search for the significance of the queer body in nature.

these three themes i most often work within are so often positioned in contrast with each other, as if they are mutually exclusive. i strive to find and create the subjects and spaces where these themes are in unity with each other, always asking myself: where are the non-human queer bodies around me and what do we share?
