"When the news of HB2 came out, it struck at the heart of who I am as a person and an artist. My work has always been inspired by the people and events that impact my life. At this time in our state's history, I feel a calling to speak out for our community, for those of us who know and treasure the value of every human life and every human experience. HB2 is a multifaceted law created to confuse issues and promote fear of the unfamiliar. With the creation of Transform, I aim to offer glimpses of a variety of life transformations, creating a unifying theme that every person's path deserves respect. It is my hope that by experiencing a moment from another's perspective, that I can create the familiar within the unfamiliar, to humanize that which is unfairly demonized."
