About:

I believe in the transformative power of fashion. I believe that all bodies are good bodies and that fashion should be representative of us all.

I was bedridden 2014-2016 with complications from a rare white blood cell disorder and undiagnosed vestibular migraines. While laying bed for two years, I thought about how many times I didn’t put myself out there because I didn’t feel good enough (the way I looked, the way I talked, my grammar, not being a polished enough). I promised myself *if* I did get better put myself out there full front and center. The moment I regained my health I started a blog and Instagram.

As a teen, I would lose myself in editorial images. The fantasy in the images transported me from my rural upbringing and made me think everything was possible. I copied the looks in Vogue and W by using thrifted clothing. High fashion images, of course, historically do not represent me or many people in general.

Visuals are a powerful language that can help transform a culture by transforming how an individual sees oneself. I have a BFA and I studied art formally in South Korea, Croatia and the United States. I have been part of multiple international exhibitions (installation, performance and painting).

Once my health became stable I decided to use my knowledge of art and intersectional feminism to take the task of creating plus size editorial images. With the help of my husband, I chose locations, composition and mood. He has been behind the camera for 2 years.  I post these on Instagram and my blog. Eventually, I want to be behind the camera again and photograph other people.
