School of Consciousness and Transformation
Interdisciplinary Arts and Writing

Frenetic, and often tainted by underworld journeys of the psyche, my practice communes with natural cycles of the Earth and invokes the transpersonal. I move, mark make, write, and create from an embodied raw state. Diving inward, I emerge generating compositions that draw the viewer in to their own abstract emotional landscape. I choose to explore the implications of life, death, and transformation to liberate myself. My lifelong drawing and painting practice has led me further into photography, installation, performance, writing and stop-motion animation. With research grounded in the lens of intersectional feminism, I generate work that mirrors personal and planetary healing and shifts humanity toward justice.
