Im so honored to be able to attend and present at this years Graphic Medicine Conference! I will be sharing work from my project Fall Risk, a visual narrative about living with PTSD and disability after a near fatal attack. One of my pieces My Body/Not My Body is also featured in this years conference publication!
I will be showing Psych/Ick Ward, a crazy queer protection spell (that we survive) conjured in collaboration with Clio Thatcher Sady At SOMArts! Opening June 3rd, 2017 along with several amazing shows as a part of the National Queer Arts Festival!
"You Are Enough is a visual arts show that calls forth our strategies of resistance, radical self-love, and breaking the silence in order to shirk off the shame associated with Crazy. This shame demands our very lives as sacrifice, but we have the power, though collective voices, to banish it. Artists name and reclaim our Crazy to become more fully embodied and more recognizable to ourselves and one another."
The homepage of Esquire, one of the biggest men's magazines in the country featured this photo of an activist wearing a Hex the Patriarchy Tshirt (Designed by myself and Lacey Johnson btw) facing off against fascists and nazis during a failed conservative rally in Berkeley. I mean, I can clearly see its our design. And I think it means the Hex is working.
So excited for this year's Magic Makers queer art, craft and healing fair! I will be vending Hex the Patriarchy, prints, handmade jewelry and accessories on both December 3rd and 4th! Its been amazing to be on the organizing committee of a craft fair that center the work of People of Color, queers and Working Class artist, crafters and healers. We will also be collecting donation for Indigenous Struggles at Standing Rock and locally. Find our more info about this year's fair here.
The group formerly known as DIY MFA Bay Area invites you to a visual art show exploring THE HEX as autonomous feminist magic.
We are re-imagining grassroots feminist responses to violence. Through self and community education, we are using an imagined lens: A hex as a spell for feminist autonomy and collective self defense. Each artist has explored what this means to them, presenting multiple interpretations of hexes as a vehicle for self determination, self defense, protection of self and community, transformative justice, time and place, cultural transformation, creative ways to respond to violence without using the prison system, and as a vehicle for self determination.
Please join us for the Opening October 19, 6-9pm.
With an artist Talk: October 29 2-4pm
The exhibition is at Qulture Collective October 10- Nov 1.
Bruxeria Designs will be at Fabulosa this year September 15-18! We will be offering handmade recycled bicycle chain jewelry, unique buttons, and our amazing and limited edition Hex the Patriarchy prints, shirts and bags. Fabulosa is a woman centered fundraiser and camping party near Yosemite with workshops, music and more. Hope to see you there!
I'm excited to have my piece, "Las Dos Chingonas" included in the upcoming Pasión For Frida show at the new Sanchez Contemporary in Oakland! This piece is a personal tribute to the influence Frida Kahlo's life and work has has on me as a queer disabled woman in reclaiming my art practice as I learn to navigate life after a random and brutal attack that has left me with permanent injuries.

One of my drawings will be included in the Spring 2016 issue of Intima: The Journal of Narrative Medicine! As an artist exploring medical trauma in my work, I deeply appreciate that there are developing practices of medicine that strive to take into account people's experiences and creative expressions as valuable ways of understanding healing.
