I am an artist studying painting and gender studies at Skidmore College. My art is informed by feminism and my feminism is informed by art. I am interested in the intersection of art, spirituality, and identity (gender, race, sexuality). How are people using spirituality to reclaim or express their identities? How are various identities represented through art? Is it possible to separate an artist’s identity from their art? Is it possible to separate their spirituality from their artistic process? These are some of the questions I am asking; art is the tool I use to look for the answers.
My roots are in Maine, just outside of Portland, but I am now in the Los Angeles area when I am not at Skidmore.
