My visual arts research creates collaborative intermedia artwork in diverse public spaces, which addresses socially conscious subject matter. Through video and animation projects, live performances, and responsive systems, my projects creatively respond to the physical and social character of an environment in an effort to bring diverse people together to inspire, and be inspired.
My work revolves around the Central Valley, with recent work focusing upon Modesto, California. While not a native to Modesto, it is where I have been the longest, having lived throughout the country during my childhood and youth. Growing roots in this community has had a profound impact on my artwork, and my sense of personal expression and art activism.
