Her studio in East Los Angeles has engaged with community for more than a decade—blurring the distinction between the funder and the funded. Connecting her creative practice with her trusteehood has enabled a scope and scale and pace of practice that answers the motto the studio works by: “Artists Need To Create On The Same Scale That Society Has The Capacity To Destroy.”
