I like to create art that focuses on femininity, representation of different body types, as well as mental health and self image issues. I want to create art that destigmatizes and fully appreciates what it's like to exist as you are. We don't need to change what we feel in order to be beautiful or acceptable; we just need to embrace it.

Paola Segura is a first generation something* from Los Angeles. She has a cat named after a Johnny Cash song, and fourteen lizards, none of whose names were inspired by the man in black. She writes when she remembers to, but struggles to remind herself to do so more often than not.

As a child, Paola spent her weekends traveling from Los Angeles, her home, to Ensenada, Baja California Mexico. These visits were, of course, so that she could spend time with all her family: nana, tata, tías, tíos, primos, y primas. These weekends also served to fuel her interest in language and her work reflects her own code-switching reality.

*Mexican-American, Chicana, or perhaps Xicana? She’s always changing her mind.

Megan Elaine Wirick is a fine artist living and working in Philadelphia, PA. Her practice focuses on consent and agency in a digital age. It is about finding a space for sexual desire and intimacy after sexual trauma. This is not a single linear narrative but rather an allegory of queer femme sexuality in contemporary digital society informed by trauma and interruptions of intrusive or triggering thoughts. This crafted space defies norms and binary systems while also acting as a safe space through the theory that negotiations of intimacy are a way we can acquire agency. These acts are a visual reorientation of a tenderness to exist with emotional and physical autonomy.
