Working primarily in mail art, my work focuses on diaristic sharing through personal letters written to friends. My mail art emerged within the riot grrrl zine scene of the 1990s and helped me cope with my transient military childhood. Much like my early zines, my mail art operates as resistance, the essential tenant that drives my practice. My work employs empowered visibility, that by its very exposure challenges structures of oppression in today’s society. I use language in the processes of resistance, documenting rather than hiding the ramifications of my mental health, attempting to connect with others through an exhibition of self on my own terms, and always returning to the personal as political.
