I create wearable-performative characters that embody ideals and tell stories. I call my characters ‘Fine Art Superheroes’ because just like comic-book characters, my heroes wear costumes representing the values they embody. I create my costumes by hand, using fabric paint, cotton leotards, and various materials for the headpieces. I use motifs and patterns from different cultures to create unique character identities which connect visually to each character's theme. After creating the suits I collaborate with dancers to create live performances and photographs which explore each character's identity and personal narrative. My wearable artworks are a means by which I expand my understanding of culture, history, art, the human experience, science, spirituality, story telling, myth making, and the creative process.
