All of my work is inspired by the difficult relationship humans have with sexual desire. I'm particularly interested in the disconnect between the true sexual nature of women and the stories society tells us about women's sexuality.

Bear Claw

Sisters April and Francesca return home to support their father in the wake of accusations he has sexually harassed one of his students at the local high school. Though troubled by the lack of information surrounding their father’s situation, the two separate for the night as April trades flirting with a faraway fling for human contact and Francesca tries to find meaningful conversation at a sloppy house party.
