NOBODY DESERVES YOU THE WAY THAT I DO showed in June of 2015 at LEON gallery in Denver, CO.
This grandiose statement echoes a sentiment I witness in my media-driven generation: a generation that thrives off of larger-than-life, often misguided declarations of adoration.

This body of work aims to reflect my own struggles with self-love.
