My Mission Statement

My mission is to feed and cultivate the creativity and courage that lies in the heart of every human being. Through provocative and playful art, including burlesque, I aim to fortify each individual’s sense of self-ownership and self-love while empowering each artist’s meaningful contributions (mind, body, and spirit) to the evolution of the whole.

Joy, liberation, and Love are centered through my work.

As an artist in a white body, I continue to practice awareness and acknowledgement of my privilege and disrupt all forms of White Supremacy. I embrace the imperfection of my anti-racism journey, online and in person.  

As a Survivor of sexual assault, my work exists to challenge the influence of women’s socialization and uplift and touch the hearts of all people.  

I aim to use my discipline, curiosity, and imagination to (co)-create a more loving and kind human culture.
