The studio and animals are my 'safe place'. Like many autistic people, I have worn a mask all my life, never daring to show my authentic self for fear that others might see my difference. The installation, 'Studio Creep,' is an assemblage of Late Renaissance-inspired works on paper, digital prints and video that explores the role of animals and the studio as a 'safe place' in the world for a neurodiverse individual. The spirits of animals from classical artworks manifest through charcoal, paint, and pixels; they climb down the wall and creep across the floor. This is the artist's den, an environment of safety and contentment.
