p1nkstar creates a world far removed from this dimension's binaries through music and conceptual shows, merging hyperpop with neo-perreo and club. She has been described as “early Aughts Paris Hilton on Hello Kitty steroids” by The Austin Chronicle, who crowned her as their Pop Princess in 2020. Since 2016, p1nkstar has rapidly become an emblematic figure in the Texas arts and nightlife scenes by opening inclusive spaces that center the work of trans and queer artists.

p1nkstar has received three Best of Austin awards for her space-making work in the city & has been presented as the future of nightlife in The Austin Chronicle’s cover. Most recently, p1nkstar became the first trans person to receive an Austin Music Award, winning Best Electronic Artist of the year. She was also featured on Billboard speaking against Texas’ Anti-Trans Initiatives, and recorded a Live Session with NPR. In 2021, she appeared on the cover of both The Austin American Statesman and Austin 360 and was featured on Spotify's Fresh Finds playlist. p1nkstar’s work has been exhibited at Blanton Museum of Art, The Visual Arts Center, SXSW, Fusebox Festival & The Roots & Culture Contemporary Arts Center in Chica
