I am a strong confident woman. I take pride in the fact that I have opinions and use my art to talk about complex issues that challenge identity and language. I defy simplistic categorization and my work explores the multitudes of self.
In elementary school I remember boys and girls being separated before being taught about their bodies, periods, boners, pregnancy, etc. Ever since then I thought that was how conversations about “women’s problems” should happen; not around boys. Have those discussions behind closed doors, be discrete. Even today I still whisper the word period and cringe at the thought of having to have conversations about birth control and abortions.
I have intimacy issues. is a video that gives power back to us. Our bodies are our own and we can do with them what we need to.
