I am a multimedia artist, art + yoga teacher 200 RYT, and social justice activist who is passionate about using art + yoga as a method of social change. I am curious about improving my practice and making greater intersectional connections across media, disciplines, and communities through social practice art works. I rarely stick to any one art medium, because I enjoy exploring as many different materials and processes as possible in order to deepen my own skills as an artist. Learning many different styles of art helps better inform my ability to teach a wider variety of art and techniques with my students and the public.
As both an artist and an art teacher, I seek out intersections between these two roles and advocate and find opportunities for the public and my students to explore their take on our current political, ecological, economic, and social conditions. The arts and arts education are vital agents of social change and social justice reform. I believe the artist's role is to reflect the times they live in. Over the years, I have created several social practice artworks in collaboration with the public and local youth artists. At heart, I see myself as a community artist.
