I'm a twenty-four year old queer, autistic artist from Canada that loves movement, colour, and impressionism.

I've found that above all else, people strive to understand, and to be understood. Though we can never fully close the space between us, we can rely on symbols to translate our thoughts, feelings, and experiences to one another. Words are one way we can narrow that gap, and visual art is another. I often use my art to capture and express emotion, or to freeze my experiences in time. Each painting is a piece of me, and I hope that comes through to the viewer.
