I am a queer disabled artist living in Florida, finishing my MFA in studio art. I make work, write, and run a podcast called DIY Access that focuses on novel solutions to longstanding issues of inaccessibility. My art practice finds beautiful and dignified ways to show the invisible parts of being disabled. It is honest without veering into the murky waters of trauma porn and shows joy and optimism without becoming another artifact of toxic positivity. The work spans many mediums including printmaking, photography, painting, and fiber art - most of the pieces end up in conversation with one another when installed. Each medium is just as important as the idea being put into it, the form being another facet of communication that holds its own meaning. Democratic means of production are heavily favored, showing both the industrial application to the individual and how this mechanical reproduction can serve our liberation.
