Artist statement:

When my brain had trouble producing words after an injury, occupational therapy taught my hands to tell stories instead. My fingers craft stories about the embodiment of disability in me: twisting, painting, knotting, and burning fibers in dialogue with pain and the confusing input from my eyes until the story is told. I push against what I cannot do and accept something new while untangling the knotted cords of internalized ableism.
