I am a multimedia artist, working primarily with photography, video and site specific installations. My work actively supports systemic social change, influenced by ecofeminism as a cultural form of resistance.

I stand by the rebellious aspect of my generation, referencing progressive movements in Bolsonaro's Brazil and exploring my immigrant experience in Trump's U.S.A.  I look to BIPOC Women Activists, community leaders and environmental intersectional feminist theories for inspiration and guidance.

I reconcile beauty with the distorted reality I navigate. My message defies inherited oppressive social dynamics, communicating global issues and empowering groups that are sentenced to be othered by the exploitative, colonial and heteropatriarchal reality we live in.  I create environments where I cast spells, elevate women and rebel against concepts of normalcy.
