Mixed Media Art

Ell@s Collective was a feminist art collective that I co-founded with friends in the south bay of LA. Around 2011, we held a public free art show where we had music, art, tarot readings, and even a tampon piñata filled with candy and condoms! It was the first time I featured art on an indoor/legal space and of course it was an homage to the femmes in my life. I never got to finish the piece for my sibling Gina and I’ll finish that one some day. Check out some of my art below:
