Artist Statement: Pea is always in a stage of transformation and believes when we think we’ve finally become who we are supposed to be, then the journey is at an end. She holds equivalency to a Masters in Graphic Illustration from private tutoring and is working towards an interdisciplinary Masters in Psychology and Creative Writing as a Phi Theta Kappa honors student. A published poet, a ceramicist, and a professional knitter for over ten years, Pea is passionate about advocacy, an active member of the LGBTQ+ family, and is building an art therapy program for adult survivors of sexual violence to reclaim their power. Pea believes the current models for sexual health are exclusionary to a wide range of the LGBTQ+ family and intends to change the conversation about healthy sexuality through poetry and erotica. To facilitate this goal, she launched Lavender Lime Literary ( to provide an inclusive, trauma-informed space for poets and artists to challenge westernized models of sexual health together. She lives on a small island off the east coast of Florida with her husband, her son, and their menagerie of birds, cats, reptiles, and spiders. She can most often be found feeding wild doves in her front yard and arguing with iguanas about whose pepper plants are whose.
