artist statement

when i was three years old, my parents caught me in the act of scribbling in pencil all over the wall in our kitchen. there is a photo of this moment that i like to cite as documentation of the very beginning of my career as an artist. 

elliot gale as a baby

you may notice that in this photo, i'm dressed in pink. not that the color pink truly holds any gendered meaning, but i lived as a girl for the first fifteen years of my life. coming out as trans in 2018 and growing into my identity heavily influences my artistic practice to this day. most of my work directly addresses queer issues (and i consider the rest to be inherently queer because it came from my handiwork.) other topics may include trauma, gender roles/expression, nostalgia, and a lot of cowboys. 

i work primarily in paint, photography, and collage. i have created and exhibited short films, photographs, paintings, posters, zines, comics, poetry, and more.
