My practice as an artist, academic and activist is diverse and unusual. Currently, I run the FAG feminist art gallery as a political hub of queer and feminist cultural production. Most recently, I collaboratively made Killjoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House. I am interested in affect, craft, fatness, sex, intersectionality, practice based research and queer/feminist art.
