I am a glutton for bursting color, feathers, glitter, and skin of natural human beings. The images I make while fun and indulgent are also multifaceted addressing themes of love, sexuality, culture, individuality, and passion. And the message is easily accessible.

In my current body of work and most of the work I’ve ever made, I want to communicate what’s left behind once you break down broad generalizations of people. I also want viewers to feel good and optimistic and like they can relate somehow to any subject in my portraits.

I tend to photograph “others’ often. There are those of us under represented or ill represented in western media.
