Preoccupied with the social realm, I make platforms, personas, performances, and documentation to look at why we need each other and meaning. I deeply enjoy working with other artists and often integrate administrative tactics and strategic thinking into projects. They often assume the form of established infrastructures that I shift to meet a different purpose. Most recently, I've contributed to Shari Diamond's Quarantine Zines, exhibited at 601Artspace in New York, and organized and curated Terrain Biennial Newburgh, a participant in Terrain Biennial 2019.

I've been a resident at The MacDowell Colony, The Wassaic Project, and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts’s SHIFT Residency; a participant in LMCC’s Swing Space, and a local inbound resident at apexart; received grants from Awesome Newburgh and Orange County Arts Council, Brooklyn Arts Council, and Black Rock Arts Foundation. The Work Office (TWO) was produced five times in New York, 2009–11, including in Times Square with the Times Square Alliance. Iron Maiden Artist Tours ran 2011–13 with six tours and artists. I sometimes perform or create work for nonart venues including Crossfit Commitment, Chicago, IL and private homes. My work has been included in traditional exhibition spaces like Arts Incubator and A+D Gallery, Chicago, IL; 601Artspace, Printed Matter, Bronx River Art Center in New York, NY; the Wassaic Festival, NY; Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA; and Steven Wolf Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA.
I'm a white East Coast cisgendered woman raised by art + english teachers, schooled by their private-school employers in various cities, and a figurative poet at my bottom nature, for better and for worse. A BA in English and studio art was mercifully given by Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and an illuminating MFA in photography was had at San Francisco Art Institute. I am in Newburgh, NY, growing social, cultural, and physical roots as much as possible.
