Is am a dancer, choreographer and teacher living in Brooklyn, originally from the Olympic Peninsula (Port Angeles, WA). Her creative work manifests from dancing and takes shape in choreographed work, photography, collage, creative writing and sound design. She thinks of my process as mercurial and shape shifting and when making a dance, constructing and distilling an atmosphere that rides parallel to the work. She immerses herself in a process of dance training, continuously interested in the materiality of the body and the invitation from dancing into magical thinking and fantasy. When looking at her creative work, you might see slippage, blurry foggy chaos, melancholy, collaged limbs.
