I will nestle myself within your hunger for the ground

My work is centered around personal narrative and autobiographic storytelling. Much of it addresses lived experience involving generalized and social anxiety. The images I share, although explicit to my own experiences, have resonated with people who then felt safe to share their own stories of struggles with mental health, creating a unique space for empathy and community building. Art can be a very powerful tool in this way, it opens doors and asks us to grapple with difficult questions.
