❝ I am a work in progress. Unapologetically myself, full of flaws, but always striving to be better. I love love. I am romantic. I am funny. I am queer. I am non-binary. I strongly advocate for dismantling gender roles, and anything considered to be appropriate behavior for a specific sex. ❞ 

 

Chuck NorrisDeveloping this style of images must need a lot of imagination. Where do you get your inspiration from?


I am inspired by gender identities, queer culture, and a passion to create. These pieces communicate unspoken feelings and moods. My mind is very intense. I dream almost every night. Even in my sleep, I feel present. It can be exhausting having such an active imagination, but I feel connected to these concepts; especially the ones illuminate the fact that gender is a social construct. Sort of like art drag, I just make it up.

 

Where did you get your artist name from?

I actually didn't over think the name. I typed it in and fortunately, it was available on Instagram. I do enjoy the idea that art evokes a sexual emotion. It can turn you on, make you feel all the feels, turn you off, you know what I mean. I love the word fuck, it can mean anything depending on your connotation. Actually, the more I think about the name, it really summarizes my work.
 

❝ I am most proud of my creativity. Fortunately, I've been gifted the ability to bring my ideas to fruition with ease. The process of creating concepts and finding visual solutions comes naturally. I'd say on the flip side, I am sensitive and anxious, so putting myself and my ideas into the universe is a scary place. That has always been a challenge for me. 

 

You have a lot of creations about the lips of women. Why do you like using them so much?

I mostly use lips and eyes as a landscape. I try to find ways to mix in other elements but usually, they serve as a way to display the concept. I find that creates a surreal world that people can also relate to. I also love using lips, as art drag, adding makeup to masculine beings, or animals. Things like that.

Do you think creativity is something you have or you can develop?

I think it's there in everyone, just comes naturally to some.

 

What’s your motto in life?

Re-examine everything you've been told.

 

What’s the thing you like the most about your job?

That it doesn't feel like a job.

 

 

You like to use a lot of color into your work. Would you say it’s a representation of your personality?

I have a strong personality, but I'm more "black and white", "love it or hate it". Although, I do have rainbows shooting out at the things I love. So, sometimes ...
