I am a visual artist and social practitioner specializing in hyperlocal participatory research projects which amplify grassroots perspectives on belonging, resilience, and mental well being. I use community engagement and inclusive design to gather diverse perspectives, which I interpret into hand-crafted objects, such as flags, banners, comics, zines, letterpress prints, graphite diagrams, portraits, and soft sculptures. My practice is guided by principles of accessibility, decentralization, optimism, and abundance.
