Focus

My practice takes up writing, photography, installation, performance, sculpture, archives, teaching, and curation. In my work, I investigates the intersections between memorialized events and place often reframing ideas of residencies as artistic practice incorporating elements of lived materials, biker subculture, and feminism through a Southern Gothic-Imagist lens.
