I make handmade one-of-a-kind beaded jewelry as well as wreaths and wall hangings featuring locally foraged branches, pine cones, and citrus, as well as flowers.hazensummer13

The innate vibrancy, fierceness, beauty and openness of the queer community inspires me to push myself in my creative process and create something of beauty to contribute to this world.

i would like to start growing the flowers that I use in my work. Access to land is my biggest challenge, but I’m determined to find a creative solution to make my visions a reality.

What I want to see from queer community is for us to all be able to prosper.  Prospering inspires and encourages those younger than us to be both inspired and build upon the work we have made and take it further.
