is creating Fine Art Superheroes: Epic Characters for the 21st Century




per month


I create wearable-performative characters that embody ideals and tell stories. I call my characters ‘Fine Art Superheroes’ because like comic-book characters, my heroes wear costumes representing the values they embody. I use Fine Arts patterns from different cultures to create unique character identities which visually connect to each character's theme. After creating the suits I collaborate with dancers to create live performances and photographs which explore each character's identity and personal narrative. Through my characters I uncover new ideas, make connections and find answers to deeper questions about sciences, spirituality, myth-making, and the creative process.
