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.
Currently I’m a Mindscapes artist-in-residence at large (NYC, Berlin, Tokyo, Bengaluru). I am also the lead artist in How I Keep Looking Up / Como Sigo Mirando Hacia Arriba / 仰望, a new, cross-cultural public art and social practice project with working class, Spanish- and Chinese-speaking womxn in collaboration with the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco.
