This past year, I was privileged to be an Artist-in-Residence at the College of Biological Sciences Conservatory at the University of Minnesota. As part of this residency, I created four large ceramic tiles for the newly renovated entry to the Conservatory & Botanical Collection. The tiles depict plant species specific to the four biome rooms in the new Conservatory. My illustrations are also used in graphics throughout the space.

I was incredibly grateful to receive a 2021 Creative Support for Individuals Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. As part of this grant, I created a resource guide for art educators to provide teachers with reference materials and discussion questions based on the work of three contemporary, nationally recognized female BIPOC ceramists.
