As a multidisciplinary artist and teacher, my diverse practice supports an ongoing investigation into how we interact with each other physically, psychologically, and socio-politically. My videos, drawings, prints, and performances reimagine the possibilities and limitations of gender, intimacy, and relationships in late capitalist America. I am interested in how private feelings bleed unpredictably into the public space of the community and surrounding landscape. My work is influenced by my own experience of top surgery and gender queerness, my commitment to queer and feminist collaborations and pedagogies, as well as my role as a caregiver and teacher of people with Alzheimer’s and other disabilities.
