UPCOMING: SELECTED FOR DEEP ECOLOGY ARTIST FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM AT UPS - SPRING 2021
I got to know the work of Ohio-based organization United Plants Savers through an online course on Foraging given by The Herbal Academy, early in June this year. I've been in conversation with them since, and we finalized the dates of my participation in their Artist-In-Residence program this week! Very excited to visit their sanctuary and make work there next year. If you would like to learn more about their work, visit their website.

I will be performing live at Highways Performance Space on Saturday, January 25th. The piece is called "Veiled" and is inspired by the mysterious busts of veiled virgins that populate Western Art History. Thinking around ideas of womanhood, sacredness, authorship and his-story, I plan on questioning-revolting-revealing and liberating this archetype. Do join me! Tickets here.
One of my doormats from the series "Bienvenidos" made it to the group show "Some Place Like home", at Avenue 50 Studio. Exciting!
