Artist Statement

My work explores social and political issues through fiber, embroidery, installation, video, performance, and the Internet. I utilize these materials to examine women’s health issues, rape culture, American politics, the concept of heroes and the cosmos, often inviting interaction through performance and the Internet.

My recent work addresses the current political climate in the United States, often incorporating simple cathartic interactions for viewers to engage in, which stems from my previous work as an art therapist.

After giving birth to my first child I began researching the history of obstetrics in the United States. This resulted in projects about abuse at the hands of doctors, and how it relates to rape culture, in addition to examining America’s high maternal mortality rate, postpartum PTSD, transparency in healthcare costs, and obstetrics’ roots in racism and misogyny.
