Multi-media Artist/ Member of Spokane Film Project. I will always be a street artist first as I believe art should be accessible by all. 
I am an artist, activist and filmmaker. Collaborating with other curatorial teams like Black Rabbit Magic, Boys Who Like Butterflies and The Performance Artist/artist Bruce Horman, juxtoposing art and community in order to bring light to ways of making art that expresses community and sustainability. My personal practice includes filmmaking, producing, writing, curating, photojournalism, performance art, painting, as well as community engagement and social interventions. I am working towards a fine art degree in Performance Art and Film..with a concentration of Art as Healing. I have also been a figurative art model posing for artists such as Tom Quinn, Jack Lantz and Peace. Some of the oil paintings I have posed for have won national oil painting awards Including Peace and her piece which won “best new artist” for Art on the Green. As a figurative model I like challenging censorship, womens roles in fairy tales, and women in pop culture. I like encouraging a stronger more positive role, for women, other than what is seen in the public and media. In film I like to tell positive stories of women of all races and not just the cliche’ roles of women or maybe a part of the narrative that is uncomfortable or controversial. I love pin-ups, the story of Bettie Page and Marylin Monroe.They are real role models to me just like Emily Dickinson and Rosa Parks. I have acted in several films and danced in a few films as well. After a near tragic accident, where I nearly lost my leg, I picked up a camera as a way to heal and stay involved in art. I am inspired by Spike Lee, Martin Scorsese, and Jim Henson. As a street artist, I have a special love of comic book artists and those that draw graphic novels. I have included them under my wing as they are now the new top banned books in America. I love the creative and innovative art they bring to our drawing, dramatic, comedic lives.
