The Berkeley School
Teaching Artist, ECC-5th grade / creator of civic engagement art curriculum
Berkeley, CA
Teaching artist, collaborator, curator, creator of changemaking curriculum early Childhood - Adults. I find meaning in supporting others in finding their voice through working with materials, processes, and artistic thinking. In my studio practice I bring my deep experience in a vast array of art process and understand of materials to my work that spring from domestic and historically undervalued work of women. I use the languages of sewing, collage, assemblage, clay, and textile techniques as metaphor to convey ideas of identity, memory, family, home, and a sense of place. My collections of readymade objects are often in dialogue and relationship to those I create. I am drawn to material culture and see that it can provoke dialogue and engage everyday citizens in entering a conversation. My teaching practice is a social practice which is informed by my own art making as a multidisciplinary artist. By offering students a variety of languages through art materials and processes they are able to develop their understanding of themes as learners. In the process of understanding their own intersectional identities it allows them to understand diversity of experiences of others. In tandem, this allows them to move to understanding what Justice looks like, sounds like, and feels like. I witness this in students eveloping a voice with agency which allows them to carry out actions as citizens in their greater community of family, school, town, and world. Through my teaching it is my hope to offer students a pathway to positive change, and tools for enacting social justice.
