I am a scholar, artist, educator, activator, and reluctant administrator. My cross-disciplinary practice is situated at the intersections of textiles and politics and spans multiple media and forms including scholarly research and writing, curating, visual essays, print works and text based installations, neon, performance, textiles, teaching and mentorship, collaborations, and organizational leadership. I am centrally interested in collectivity, collaboration, and community building. Many of my projects emphasize the crucial role that fiber and textiles can play in bringing people together as part of struggles for social, economic, and racial justice. I draw inspiration from historical instances of collective organizing and collective resistance, particularly in movements for better living and working conditions in the textile and garment industries.
