I make figurative ceramic sculptures of 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 nuances of gender identity outside of a prescribed binary. The figures are often 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.
