She has been awarded a Natalie Leaf Foundation Fellowship for Education in Arts, Crafts, and Trades, and maintains a commitment to the creation of public art in her practice, advocating for access to the arts for all regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience. Her work has been exhibited internationally and is held in both public and private collections.
Her work has deep roots in folklore and fairy tales, taking a numinous approach to the natural world. She is interested in the role of nature in the development of our core mythologies and in the narratives inspired by discrete geographies. She currently lives in Boston making monsters, writing fairy tales, and catering to her fabulous Chihuahua, The Brain.
