I am a multi-disciplinary artist who uses community organizing, participatory experience, and radical vulnerability to inquire and intervene on how social norms and sociopolitical dynamics affect health, intimacy, selfhood, and community. So much of my work is possible through active participation and community effort.

The work is shaped by social investigations that encourage moments of connection for people to publicly open doors that often remain closed. The experiences transfer into works that invite others to unpack their own perspectives, habits, and conditioning. I also work with self portraits, becoming a poster child for otherness and emotional struggle to process my own intersecting identities. The first step of my work is to break down the barriers of performative culture to reach a place that serves healing, connection, and discovery. Creative Motion: People x Knowledge x Art

She will be pursuing her MFA in Art and Social Action at Queens College, CUNY starting Fall 2019.
