My work focuses on social criticism, sexual expression, and issues of identity.  This series is titled Halloween on Christmas.  The juxtaposition of figure and environment is meant to draw attention to the aggressive pull of straight cis society to assimilate into a culture that will never accept us.  Being queer in straight America often feels like getting dressed up for Halloween on Christmas.
