Artwork / 2023
2023 is the year my art career turns twenty! To celebrate this milestone artiversary, I’m doing a blog series about some of my most mundane mistakes, little things that ultimately make keeping on keeping on as an artist so hard. Because if I had to name one main reason why I’m still making art after all this time, it’s that I refused to let these everyday fails frustrate me. You can start with Mistake #1.
Other than getting older, this year is about getting mentally healthy through my series Everything’s Fine. After running a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the work, I’m in the process of turning the paintings into a coloring book. Thank you to everyone who’s supporting this project!
Also, this year I made my big screen début in the excellent documentary Queerying Nature by Aline Magrez and Leonor Palmeira! So much of what I’ve done in my twenty years as a full-time artist makes me proud, but nothing more than my participation in this beautiful film.
