Born and raised in Miami, Florida, I currently live and work in Brooklyn, NY, after having spent time in such places as Gainesville, San Francisco, Minneapolis and Providence. Drawing, printmaking, painting, textile works, sculpture, video and photography are some of the mediums that I work in and I'm often dabbling in something new.

For the past several years, I've been immersed in PEGACORN PRESS, which is a publishing house that is solely operated by myself, using Risograph stencil duplicators. This feminist, queer, and "total-art-freaker" press specializes in producing and releasing small-run art books, zines and comics. So far, twenty three publications and projects have been released since the Fall of 2011:

New projects are always in the works and as all the details are figured out, they'll be posted on both my personal blog and the one set up for the press.

If you find yourself interested in acquiring art/publications/more, please simply look at the "PURCHASE ART" section (on the left side bar), to be directed to either Etsy or Storenvy. I truly believe in making my work accessible and in person, tend to sell items on a sliding scale basis. That being said, if you see something that you'd like to purchase- but are short on funds- more than likely, we can work out a fair trade. I'm always looking for wild-crafted medicinal plants, seaweeds, koji, taxidermy, bee keeping equipment and books about all of the above... and more. If you have any of those said items to spare, let's trade!!

Take care-
