Artist Statement/Bio
I am an artist, activist, and educator residing in Springfield, Massachusetts. I have used my foundational skills as a painter and printmaker to expand my practice to encompass interdisciplinary formats, including film, installation, fiber and sculpture.
My undergraduate thesis work, a series of acrylic paintings entitled “City of Homes, Thank You” is on permanent display at the Springfield College Center for Leadership and Civic Engagement. These works, as well as the series’ accompanying poem, celebrate the beauty and strength of the Springfield community.
My current personal work addresses the complications around the concept of shame in relation to the female identity, generational trauma, and narratives revolving around surviving sexual assault. These themes intersect with the concept of healing, and my work explores the nuances and politics found in the idea of healing in a consumerist world which functions to silence the voices of women.
I deeply value my relationships within my local community and keep this at the center of my practice. I teach in a public school in Springfield’s North End, and currently am producing work from a studio at Indian Orchard Mills. I have taught online courses during the COVID-19 outbreak in partnership with Make-It Springfield as well as a summer program for local teen artists.
In addition to producing socially engaged artwork, in my future I plan to collaborate with organizers in my community to establish a Springfield-based arts center with a focus on youth leadership and social justice causes. My interests in reforming museum establishments and access to the “art world” are the driving force to this goal. I envision that this organization will allow community members to become the curators of their world, and meaningful artwork can be produced and shared in a space functioning as both a respectable museum and community center.
