Artist Statement

Where the tundra meets the ocean renders family through photographs and the reactivation of familial archival images and documents. This ongoing project centers on Inupiaq and queer quotidian moments and memories. An intergenerational dialogue between myself, family members, and those who have passed, this work features the strong women in my life, soft moments found at home with my partner, and the spaces and memories where I find comfort. These photographs help me keep those in my family who have passed alive and my kin nearby.
