I am a 24-year-old painter, printmaker, draftswoman and proud cat mom based in the Greater Boston Area. My work is almost entirely figurative with a continuing motif of portraiture. Portraits help me better understand the people in my life, including myself, and by painting or drawing I am able to build upon and express relationships. Self portraiture is a way of cathartically processing my emotions, and regaining agency over my body as a queer trans woman living with a chronic illness.
