 Bridging the two unique perspectives that form my identity, my work explores my personal experiences as a late-diagnosed autistic adult and my tribulations with short-term memory loss as a result of multiple concussions in the last decade. My paintings and plushies serve as documentation of memories I would otherwise forget, as well as visual and tactile stimuli that provide me with restorative relief.

By balancing between the two, my work communicates universal narratives that re ect feelings of loss, comfort, confusion, and happiness. I explore these themes by transporting viewers into my own daydreams, filled with bright pops of color, textural elements, and refractive light.
