Her drawings, paper sculptures, videos and new Virtual Reality project treat the idea of the human body as a complicated abstraction: corporeally real, yet unknowable, and mediated by external forces. She received her B.A. cum laude with Honors in Art from Williams College. From 2010-2012 she initiated and led a collaborative art project at Homeboy Industries called “Exit Wounds.” Works from this project were exhibited throughout Los Angeles as part of the Craft and Folk Art Museum’s “Folk Art Everywhere” program through 2013. From 2006 – 2011 she served on the Hollywood Community Redevelopment Agency’s Public Art Advisory Board. She is the recipient of an ARC Grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation. Exhibition highlights include the Pasadena Museum of California Art, The Torrance Art museum, and various galleries. Press highlights include a profile in KCET’s award-winning “Artbound” series, the Los Angeles Times, and she was recently featured on Kitty Lindsay’s Feminist Crush podcast. In 2015 she designed and led a collage workshop with homeless individuals under the aegis of the Craft and Folk Art Museum. She is a member of the Pasadena Art Alliance and a board member at LACE (Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions).
