Collaborations

In recent years, my art practice has expanded to include collaborative projects.  Recently, I collaborated with Sahar Muradi to produce a series of monotype prints, titled Salaam Alaikum. We made this series of prints by drawing, painting and writing with oil-based inks to visualize moments in her poems. This series draws lines from Muradi’s poems that are concerned with how daily greetings take on new tenor in times of war. Also, I collaborated with Candace Williams to produce a broadside of a poem from her chapbook Spells for Black Wizards. We used lithographic process to print her poem “Black Sonnet”. I was commissioned to make prints for the Queer Resource Center at Amherst College during the Amherst Poetry Festival, hosted by the Emily Dickinson Museum. I made a series of participatory prints with local students and poets to communicate our unique perspectives on queerness. The collaborative prints expressed the diversity in queer communities as well as our shared bonds.
