My craft includes printmaking, video, performance, installation, and fiber arts. I am a creative non-fiction writer of prose and poetry. I am currently the Creative Director of The Pigeons Studio and Gallery.

Aside from art, I experiment with alternative housing and I have a passion for travel. In the last two years I have lived in four states and traveled seven countries. This has included living on a 90 acre farm, in a vintage trailer, on a train, in a van; currently I reside on an urban homestead in St. Johns, Portland, Oregon while I fix up a Streamline trailer.

I have studied art, education and women’s studies at Portland Community College and Portland State University. I hold a Video Production Certificate from PCC and a Certificate in Writing from the Independent Publishing Resource Center (IPRC).

I teach at the IPRC and previously taught through Saturday Academy’s saturday high, summer camp and after school program. My class roster has included bookbinding, video production, animation, blog writing and travel studies through hand work. I use a feminist framework in developing curriculum and creating a safe learning space.

I have volunteered at the Independent Publishing Resource Center since 2010 as a Letterpress Shop Steward, Bookbinding Steward, Community Outreach Facilitator and currently as the Zine Machine Curator. I was the Chief of Staff/Volunteer Coordinator of the Experimental Film Fest PDX and have volunteered time at the Albany Damien Center an HIV/AIDS community space in Upstate New York.
