I was born and raised in Northern California. I received my BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and now reside in Chicago. My work reflects an interest in autonomy and thoughts on intergenerational trauma while having a slight cheeky playfulness to it. I have a very tactile side to my practice exploring touch and accessibility, aiming to create worlds and build settings as well. Giving representation to BIPOC is often present, all too often these stories are told after we've passed. We continue to see instances of police brutality and I aim to touch on these losses without desensitizing us to the trauma of it all, sharing sparks of joy and fleeting happiness that we do experience while we're alive.
