My interdisciplinary research-based practice examines cultural symbols and traditions witnessed in both the South and Northeast. I split focus between exposing how the aesthetics of whiteness function to maintain ideological control and how coalition-building can undermine these ideologies. As such, I focus the other aspects of my work around the production of protest banners and garments which are made from donated materials and largely collaboratively constructed.

From Huntsville, Alabama I began my undergraduate education at CalArts, before receiving my BFA from the University of Georgia and MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, at Tufts University. I have exhibited work at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Center for Maine Contemporary Art, and Huntsville Museum of Art among gallery and university shows including the Copley Society of Art, Emerson Contemporary, Abigail Ogilvy Gallery, Kingston Gallery, Gallery 263, Lowe Mill Arts and Entertainment, Lesley University, Mississippi State University, University of Alabama in Huntsville, Birmingham Southern College, Tufts University, University of Georgia, and CalArts. I have received grant funding from the SMFA at Tufts University, Mass Cultural Council, City of Boston, CERFT+ The Artist's Safety Net, and the Verdant Fund, a Warhol Foundation Regional Re-granting Program. I was a 2021 Wiregrass Museum of Art, ArtBox Artist Mentor, a 2019-2020 Environmental Research Fellow at Tufts Institute of the Environment, and a Post Graduate Teaching Fellow with the SMFA. Currently, I am a part-time instructor at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and Lesley University and a 2022 Artist-in-Residence at The Studios at MASS MoCA, in North Adams, MA.
