Art of Transformation

Making moves for change…

From a young age, I had a passion for questions. For exploring the tense magics of our world. Why inequity and injustice exist. Perhaps these questions found seed because I came to the U.S. as an immigrant or because I have grown up amongst a world of women.

I continue the quest for social transformation & justice through two primary vehicles: advocacy for social justice and as a social practice artist & writer.

My newest creations are in collaboration with the brilliant visual artist, Anjali Deshmukh, and can be seen in our collaboration, Circlefor, and at our shop.

My second book of poetry, Miracle Marks, explores women, the sacred, and gender & racial equity.

My debut poetry collection on migration and belonging, Terrain Tracks, won the Many Voices Project prize.

Here’s to an art of change!
