As a young artist supporting and engaging in intersectional arts and movements, I’ve been able to work alongside many beautiful arts activists doing a wide array of creative resistance work in the Twin Cities. These elders, organizers, and youth empowerers have taught me the importance of indigenous wisdom and being mindful of the world we create for future generations.
My body of work is primarily sculptural and photographic, incorporating found objects and materials, both natural and artificial, with the human body. When I paint, I paint on people because a person communicates so much through their body language. Body paintings bring life and personality to my work in a way that no other medium can. I try to center my work around womxn because there is a strong connection between the violence inflicted on those who identify as female and Mother Earth.
