I am a Milwaukee-based, visual artist working across textiles, sculpture and performance-based video. I received my BFA at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2008 followed by ten years of teaching high school art classes in Chicago Public Schools. During this time, I participated in various teacher programs at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and presented my curriculum at the National Art Education Association Conference in 2016. In 2020 I received my MFA at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) with a focus in textiles and sculpture. In 2020, I was a recipient of VCU’s Graduate Thesis Grant and presented my work and research at the Institute for Contemporary Art Richmond. My work has been exhibited in Illinois, Virginia, California and New York. Currently working as Youth + Community Outreach Coordinator at MIAD, I am committed to the accessibility of visual arts programming for youth in Milwaukee.
