As a whimsical femininist from the vermilion Texas desert, my worldview hasn't shattered, but surrealized. There are volumes to paint on the modern American Western Progressive Experience - on streetwear and western wear, racism and christianity, social media threads and community organizing meetings, and the people who live it each day. Impossible to portray in their totality, I offer my painted and sewn perspective as a provocation.
Reckoning with the dark truths of our heritage and employing a childlike futurism, my work is for the new world from the old world about the world in between.
