In December of 2017 officials at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention whose job is protecting the most vulnerable population, was ordered , by the current administration , to stop using seven (7) words including "Vulnerable” in 2018 budget document.
The seven banned words on that list are: Diversity, Fetus, Transgender, Vulnerable, Entitlement, Science Based and Evidence Based.
Vulnerable was finally completed in early 2018. This piece is a true labor of love that took a whole year from start to finish. When I initially started working on a Butterfly piece in late 2016 I didn't have a final work in mind and coming into 2018 I felt like I needed to get some thoughts out of my head and Vulnerable was born.

Created in 1941 as a combination of utopian hero and fetish character, her long career covers everything from Greek mythology to political allegory to conventional superhero team adventures with the Justice League. Even better, she’s also canonically queer—something it took DC Comics several decades to admit out loud. "

A Little Bit About My WHY?
Art connects to life. It’s a reflection of self in a mirror.
My art studio is like a research lab and a safe haven where I can go to experiment and fail freely void of all judgement and criticism. It’s a place where I push myself beyond my familiar limits on daily basis to investigate how I can better understand my limitations, sensitivities, sensuality, feelings, emotions, ghosts and demons. Separately each is a fragment, a comma, unfinished thought, a chain link.
What I see as my duty as an artist is not to create new narrative, but rather connect the bits and pieces of the puzzle together into a clear form that tells a coherent story.
