"'My passion is art and people. My interest is in the people who are in between: in between worlds or in between genders.. My position “in between” has me defined by, trapped in, resisting and breaking free from the complex cultural debates of sexuality, gender, and subjectivity. My work is a rejection of the mutual exclusiveness of masculinity and femininity in favor of a simultaneous coexistence, focusing on the process through which we come to find our authentic selves and the struggles that arise as we assert those selves within constraining environments.”
