ARTIST STATEMENT:
My work imagines a soft, empathetic, alternate universe inhabited by a community of
naked, plushy creatures called fumblys . As I observe my own interactions with people and
environments, digesting the social, political, and cultural climate of our time, and looking back to
historical tragedies and precedents of mistreatment of each other, I try to make sense of how
we can collectively learn to nurture empathy. Through my image making process in drawing, I
attempt to understand how personal and collective conflicts arise and the ways in which we
learn to cope, mend, and forgive each other. I am driven to make work by imagining a world that
is softer and more forgiving, as I reflect on the social implications and struggles of living among
a community of emotional beings.
