Artist Statement

I hope to showcase the complexity of interpersonal relationships and personal struggles through my art. This film explores anxiety in love. Although it is a queer love story, I wanted it to be representative of how anxiety in any relationship can cause difficulty. Due to my own experiences with anxiety, ADHD and Dyslexia, my stories show how the inner mind affects interactions with the outside world. My love for animation started by watching the behind-the-scenes clips of Disney’s Robinhood, and has morphed into an avenue for telling my own stories.
