Experience at SAIC
I came to SAIC as a graduate student in the Fiber and Material Studies department in 2011 and never left! SAIC helps me to foster a community that supports my practice through critical feedback, show and residency opportunities, inspiring dialogue, guest artists, administrators, philosophers, makers and researchers from all over the world, and incredible students. I feel so fortunate to be an alumna of SAIC and to be teaching for this innovative and inspiring institution.
Engaging in the playful periphery of the imagined, I reinterpret self-constructed identity through layered stages of digital and sculptural representation. I am propelled by my incessant curiosity to entertain irrational, profane, and humorous impulses from within my imagination. I yield to the conceptual and material tease that this contrived world demands, and in doing so I pursue the discovery of new territories in identity, character, and sexuality.
