I grew up in the middle of cornfields in Indiana, constantly entertaining myself by making things and reading. I was organizing before I knew what that meant—I started and published a community newspaper in the second grade and organized a multi-year backyard carnival to raise money for hurricane relief at 10 years old. My most-used words were "I'm so excited."
Now, I do work as an artist, designer, photographer, organizer, quilter, and potter based in Oklahoma City. I am dreaming about new futures that involve permaculture, biomimicry, and community learning. My work is mostly about geography, memory and place, exploring agency and power, death, institutional power, identity, collectivism, cultural memory and belonging, and the land. I am usually dancing, reading, or gardening. My most-used words are still "I'm so excited."
