I will be drawing on scrap pieces of materials from projects, and leaving these drawings at places I go to. On these pieces I write the address of this website, and my instagram.

“Please Take”

I leave something behind, with the possibility and hopes of making a new connection.

Untitled (don’t forget to smile)

I looked at the smile as an expression that was frequently falsified for the sake of conforming to the roles taken on during interactions, and typical gender constructs. I also found studies online declaring that forcing a smile, by biting down on a pencil, could trick your brain into thinking you are naturally smiling. This spurred a daily photo series that spanned the course of a month. I silkscreened a shirt that reads: ‘DON’T FORGET TO SMILE.’ The shirt would act as my uniform while I worked on this project, symbolizing the constant reminders I receive in my daily life. I would put on the shirt, bite down on a pencil, force a smile, document it, and repeat.
