About Me

I am an independent artist and my practice intersects identity, ecology, and publics. Any purchase you make on this site will help me to continue operating with the type of freedom to confront problematic structural forms of power and how they shape our identities. 

By initially researching the contamination of color production in Ashland Massachusetts as part of my Master studies at Harvard, I started an art-based research inquiry into the Nyanza Superfund Site in Ashland Massachusetts and the subsequent social histories. What I discovered was a hidden narrative of activism that defines the depth of commitment that Ashland citizens have shown across time. In seeking to make these buried narratives public, I decided to juxtapose them with the EPA’s findings on remediation, thus memorializing the human impact of environmental degradation. My project has been supported with grants by Harvard Initiative Learning Technology, ArtPlace America, and the National Endowment of the Arts Our Town Program. As important as it is to raise awareness of issues of inequity, it’s equally crucial to give an audience a way forward, an aspirational vision that can help them to project a new version of self and how to become an active citizen, not only locally but globally. My aim is to use Art to disrupt power structures so a more just, equitable, healthy, and beautiful world can emerge.
