Portraits in Color is an evolving body of work that focuses on capturing the color and character of artists and performers in the queer community. Using drag as a vehicle to capture hidden personas, these intimate portraits are a result of collaborative and playful studio sessions involving loud music, constant costume changes and lots of wigs.Together, we create a narrative that brings out the surreal, unique and fantastic characters that lurk beneath the surface of our daily Bloomington lives.

Unmended is an exploration of familial legacy in the aftermath of loss. The pieces in this series, photographs of my deceased grandparents’ farmhouse in the years before and after their passing, represent a home in transition through the stages of grief and acceptance. Unmended merges photographs, textiles, and hand embroidery to express a looming fear of memory loss. In an attempt to hold close the memories associated with this place, photographs are layered and mended together in an effort to repair what is easily forgotten.
