 About Candace

serious About play


Hi! I'm Candace. My work is clown and queer; it seeks to challenge and stretch what is expected or known into a kinder, more caring, more attentive, and more inclusive space than the world at large.

It needs to exist so I can.

I make work that imagines a brighter world, that reflects what I see around me, and refracts it to emphasize the absurdities of day to day life of a working class, queer, white, southerner. I want to make work that makes you laugh and cry at the same time and makes you wonder, is this the way that things actually have to be? Why?

Looking for work in TV, animation, theatre, and weird indie games
