Artist's Statement

 

From a young age, I devoured books created by the Romance Industrial Complex. Swoony, teen fantasies that presented a certain brand of femininity: lovely, dainty, able to wield a sword … but only until marriage. Yet, the more puberty bore down on me, the more I realized that wasn’t me. That would never be me. I may be a woman, but I’m gross. My desires ain’t dainty and sometimes my body does horrifying things … but by God I’m here and I refuse to filter myself.

 

As a writer (stage/screen/general naughtiness), I aim to create work that centers on the darkly funny, pulpy realities of being human. Specifically queer and femme leaning humans (like myself) struggling with the narratives society has placed on them. Stories that buck those narratives by making “strong female characters” who aren’t just token women able to play with the boys, but whose desire demands center stage and gets to be

as funny or gross (or both) as she/they please.
