About the author
“My artistry is driven by the perceived importance of excavating and reporting truth, whatever that means for the creator. My truth has always revealed itself most nakedly through my writing: in my journal entries, in my critical essays, in my poetry. Writing is my instrument of examination and growth. It is the vehicle through which I discover my voice and then vocalize, fine-tuning my sounds as both an artist and as a woman.
My art provides me a medium to read myself: to investigate the tropes and sonics of myself, and apply those findings to other areas of my artistry. From there, I lay my truths bare in my work, sharing myself with the world.”
