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:

Preference Radio

I have wrapped up a lot of amazing work at the Center for Intercultural Organizing and got some time to talk alongside Zack about our work with Resilient Connections on KBOO Preference Radio. We talked about the Creating Change/Chains Conference, ICE and LGBTQ communities, closed spaces, and poetry as resistance. Listen here for the full episode! (PS I was depressed and stressed during this interview and there’s a couple word flops that made me blush)
