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. I began work on the collection in 2021 when I was in crisis, but I finally have a version of it that’s ready for the world. Now through July 16th the show is up at the Passaic County Arts Center!

Also, this year I made my big screen début in the excellent documentary Queerying Nature by Aline Magrez and Leonor Palmeira.
