I am a visual artist and social practitioner who explores belonging, resilience, and other dimensions of psychological well-being by engaging communities in participatory research. These cooperative processes inform artworks in drawing, calligraphy, printmaking, publishing, public art, flags, banners, and more. My goals are to create ethical and equitable social entanglements, and creative ways to gather and disseminate local knowledge.
