In 2008, she apprenticed under Martin Creed in London, England. She has shown nationally and internationally. Her work is in various collections in North America.
I disrupt conventional notions of behavior in the gallery or public art context and use humor and disruptive situations to comment on the criticality of the art environment. My conceptual and relational practice involves changing everyday public objects or texts associated with strict social regulations. Proximity, placement and color are disrupted to the point where an alteration of the social and behavioral significance as well as the usage of the object and the space around the object are changed. I use the color ‘Safety Yellow’ in my work because of its public significance of attention, caution, alertness, and risk.
