I Am Autistic

26 July 2022

So many of my friends would have already guessed it by all the stuff I’ve been sharing lately but I’m going to just come out officially and say that I am autistic. No, not instead of ADHD, many people have both; in fact, there is a great deal of overlap which makes me feel if […]

Tracing Change

22 January 2022

One of the ways in which I negotiate my deepest grief, fear and horror about the climate crisis is to wonder, with a strangely comforting sort of awe, about what might take our place long after we are gone. I think about the life and beauty that flows through us and imagine it dissolving, shifting […]

New Paintings

18 December 2021

“Sharing the Sun” a meditation on abundance and regeneration. Recently, my focus has been on turning my painting into a sort of dance with the canvas, where each brushstroke is a gesture that flows from my entire body. The reason for this is twofold; first of all, painting in a way that is grounded in […]

My Body My Earth

10 October 2021

Painted myself at 2AM last night as a meditative process. I’m trying to let myself paint how I want to paint, I’m trying to listen to the paint and work with what happens instead of forcing what I make into something that it’s not going to be. I’m trying to respond to what is there […]

Red Magazine

12 May 2020

I was asked to illustrate the cover of Red, a magazine for RhED who provide resources for sex workers, and then interviewed inside about my art, politics, identity and personal connections to sex work. It was interesting how much imposter syndrome I had, wondering how much of a right I have to speak or make […]

Twice Shy

19 April 2020

I’ve been thinking about the long-lasting effects of emotional abuse and my own story in context of that. For the last few years since it happened, I’ve worked on developing a better kindness towards myself, realizing how deeply I am inclined to be invalidating towards my own emotions and experiences. I’ve been unpacking some of […]

Fear is a Rational Response

23 July 2019

(Cross posted from a post specifically made for my Facebook) I feel uncomfortable posting as many scary climate crisis stories as I do but recently I went to a talk by a climate psychologist who said that one of the problems with climate activism has been this idea that we shouldn’t scare people. This idea, […]

My Light

2 July 2018

A couple of times in my life, people have been angry at me for the way I cling to hope and beauty. I have been called naive, childish, ridiculous. My first love told me that my sunny optimism was sickening. Desperate attempts have been made to snuff my sunshine.  I didn’t let it happen and […]
