"My image's design serves as a visual blueprint while color fill each symbolic shape with its own soul and presence. These works exist as a commemoration, observance, marking, keeping, and function- to convey a celebration of a visual lexicon, of the processes of printmaking/painting, of my own perceptive lens as a young queer maker, and as a mechanism of meaningful/meaninglessness; conversing with the individual as well as the greater contemporary narrative through printed image."
