LAYNE MARIE WILLIAMS
I am interested in new worlds and the
weird and wonderful characters that reside there.
I am hungry for collaborations that broaden my perspective and nourish both the makers and the watchers. I am interested in grand gestures, poetry, expressionism, fantasy, grit, and hard truths. I am an activist, a feminist, a Southern woman, a former Barbie, an eager student, a doodler and a dreamer. I am interested in social justice and learning from those whose histories and inspirations are different from my own.
''Stories are lies in search of the truth.''
-Guillermo del Toro
