    In my current art practice I primarily paint and work with ceramics. In addition to these methods I also incorporate a variety of materials such as wax and beads. Conceptually, my work is unique because it explores things that happened in my childhood, while addressing contemporary concerns that affect my community.

    My work titled Healing Lovers consists of a series of colorful and vibrant paintings and sculptures that explore the ways in which I have used BDSM to aid in the healing of trauma. In this work, BDSM becomes the container for self-discovery, play, catharsis, establishment of boundaries, pleasure, tenderness, honesty, safety, and the practice of care. The work will aim to show the beauty and affection that occurs between two people who are completely honest and vulnerable with each other. IG: @thequeerscorpio
