squiggles and sluts

is a queer and trans multi-media artist and sex worker. They use they/them pronouns.

They grew up in Occupied Sandia Pueblo Territory (Albuquerque, New Mexico) and relocated to Occupied Piscataway Territory (Baltimore, Maryland) in 2015 where they currently work and live. 

Much of their work draws from their experiences in the sex industry as a trans person who has to change their identity for work. They have been a sex worker in many different areas of the industry for around seven years. They document the experiences of themselves and their coworkers through illustration, animation, 3D, photomanipulation, performance, sculpture, video and photography. They create depictions of queer intimacy, kink and sex as a healing force. They celebrate that queer sex workers have always shared an intimacy with each other that is tender and beautiful. Their work aims to destigmatize sexualized work, reject shame, and celebrate life and sexuality.

 

Their abstract paintings are less representative and more energetic. In these paintings they explore shape and intuition. These pieces originated from their fascination with the color pink, but have grown to express a multitude of moods and color schemes. With these colors they express the limitlessness to their own masculinity and femininity. they strive to embody overall gender fuckery and queer flamboyance.
