In my artistic practice, I experiment with familiarity, ephemera, and organic shapes, attempting to reinterpret them within post-internet languages. Using traditional ideas and media as a springboard, I use my "irl" training to revisit concepts in screen-based media. With gratuitous use of emoticons, emojis, glitch, and video samples, my GIFs, animations and drawings typically reference a Cybertwee palette, focusing on the insistence of beauty and feminine qualities in digital spaces historically occupied by its opposite (see: Cyberpunk).

My newest animated work, "Secret Ghosts Pt. 1" is currently available for preview. Send me a dm on my contact page for more info.
