I combine photo based-installations with local research, interpersonal engagement and communal meals.
I hold an MFA in Visual Arts from Hunter College in New York, NY, and an MA in International Relations from University of Chicago, IL. At Hunter, I was awarded the Hunter College Foundation Scholarship for exchange studies at the Slade, London.
Among the places, I've exhibited my work are:
Edward Hopper House, New York Center for Book Arts, A.I.R. Gallery, Jamaica Center for Arts & Learning, Bronx Arts Space and Flux Factory.
I've presented my work at the conferences of National Women's Study Association, Open Engagement and the Alice Austen House Museum as well as discussed it on NPR's The Brian Lehrer show. To realize my projects, I have received funding from Manhattan Cultural Arts Fund, Queens Arts Council and Norddjurs Kommune (Denmark).
My work is in the collection of Candida Höfer.
