Artist Bio

My studio practice is primarily fibers-based, and includes intimate needlepoint pieces as well as large-scale, participatory sculpture and installation projects. Thematic concerns combine mysticism, depth psychology and the occult with environmental philosophy and contemporary sociocultural criticism. I have been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions, and have produced participatory installations for events, including the 2018 Chashama Gala, Tribeca Arts and Culture Night, and The Wassaic Project Summer Festival.

I am devoting April – October 2020 to co-curating and facilitating Halleck House, a 7-month-long series of experimental cross-disciplinary artist collaborations. Hosted in the home I share with musician/poet Rachele Eve, Halleck House is a site for experimentation and transformation in which failure, change and growth are the abiding principles by which success is measured. Each month 3-4 artists will be invited to take over the gallery space and weave together their interests, sensibilities and skills to create an experience that will be shared at a public opening event. Participating artists will be local to Detroit, national and international and will include (but not be limited to) visual artists, curators, writers, musicians, dancers, poets, chefs, critics, scholars, healers, intuitives, activists and clowns.

In addition to solo projects and collaborations on costuming and props with Burt Murder & Friends, Rachele Eve, and many other performers, I have been a Production Designer, Props Designer, and Costume Designer for projects in film and theatre, and worked in a fabrication studio and at a real estate staging company. I write regularly on the arts as a contributor to New York-based online publications including Gallery Ell, Filthy Dreams, and Frontrunner Magazine. I am based in the Banglatown neighborhood of Detroit.
