My work explores the intersections of social engagement and creative practice. I study and consider the layers of cultural identities performed on and by our bodies. I am specifically interested in storytelling through adornment, female cultural lineages, and the meanings of hair.
I am an anti-disciplinary artist, layering diverse media to create works ranging from public printmaking (see posters), to my visual and oral history project (see HairStories), to formal gallery installations (see tools, white boxes).
I am a candidate for an MA in Visual and Critical Studies at CCA, and received my MFA from SFAI in 2019. I earned my BA in Visual Arts and Cultural Anthropology from Brown University. My current research asks: how might hair be mobilized as a material in contemporary art and culture to perform social critiques and towards creating decoloniality.
