Typologies of Empire, 2015
BIO
"This story of a young artist’s struggle to find her voice against all odds shimmers with authenticity. I think I found my new favorite author!"
What happens when a girl with a spray can enters a world not her own? ITDW is the coming of age story of an artist finding her way on the streets of New York in 1984.

NEWS
If you haven’t heard of PechaKucha 20x20 - it’s awesome. It’s the art of concise presentation: a simple format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds.
 
For Beacon’s first PechaKucha night I presented the “Strange Fruit: Split Seed” drawing series I did based on photographs of lynchings.
 
You can hear the full presentation here.
“Typologies of Empire” will be reproduced, enlarged, and displayed for 6 months on the 90-foot long Greenkill and Broadway Avenue bridges in Kingston, NY.
