I make figurative ceramic sculptures portraying creatures that are a blend of human and animal. Through these chimera-like creatures I develop my own personal mythology to challenge the boundaries of identity, specifically opening a discussion about the taboo nuances of gender identity outside of the prescribed binary. The figures are set in otherworldly landscapes, paralleling the exploration of their non-normative identities. Through observing these fantastical sculptures I enable viewers to consider the nuances of identity and the ways in which one takes normative social tropes for granted. These interactions are catalyzing, and often spark transformative conversations.
