I was scrubbed and sanitized, prepared and drawn on, sliced and sutured. It’s a lifelong journey to sculpt yourself, through cuts and cardio and recombination. Through this pursuit, I wonder - who is allowed to transform?  These musings are ignited by the surgical presence of my transition, and boundaries faced along the way. Bringing form to transitional possibilities, my practice stitches comic arts and plush sculpture together, bearing a brood of limitless bodies.
