Events & Collaborations
Hello Friends, to be honest, I've been very hesitant to share this news socially for several reasons. But after my consultation, I'm feeling very excited and courageous about moving forward towards becoming my truest and happiest authentic self. I'm currently seeking community financial support to help me cover the cost of my transitional surgery. I have been creating and selling face masks, hand painted shirts, and other crafted goods to help raise funds to accomplish my goal. If you have a moment, please check out my gender- affirming surgery fundraiser. Any level and kind of support that you can offer is so incredibly appreciated.

North End Creators E. Grand Blvd. Banner project
Very excited to announce my collaboration with Vanguard Community Development in partnership with Good Done Daily. Good Done Daily is a graphic design studio serving non-profit, cultural, and public institutions across Detroit and Southeast Michigan. The project is called North End Creators.
Me and five other local Detroit-based artists were selected to design light pole banners for the East Grand Boulevard Streets cape Project!
My theme for this project was Musical Legacies stemmed from the North End here in Detroit. Inspired by Detroit Techno I focused my design on the Underground Resistance Musical Collective located on E Grand Boulevard. UR has been producing primarily Detroit techno since 1990 with a grungy four-track musical aesthetic, they are also renowned for their militant political and anti-corporate ethos.
The founders of underground resistance Mick Banks and Jeff Mills have been providing local artists with a platform for tools, equipment, and studios spaces to help preserve the roots of techno here in the city for a years and are still active in the community to this day.
When people view this work I want them to feel active and inspired to learn more about Detroit’s roots in Techno. I want this work to help people in the community feel proud of the history of the city and optimistic for the future.
Nov. 17–Early Dec.: Banners installed on Boulevard

Racks for Rides. Community Arts Project. Hamtramck
The Racks for Rides project is powered by the Hamtramck Downtown Development Authority, with generous funding provided by the Michigan Municipal League Foundation 2021 Bridge Builder Main Street program, and local business owners.
The DDA has invited Artists and Community Members from across Hamtramck, Detroit, and Highland Park to create designs for the City's bike racks along Joseph Campau street between Caniff and Holbrook. This public art project aligns with the city's master plan and the future ambitions of expanding the Joe Louis Greenway, which converges with Hamtramck.
The bike racks will act as a canvas for local artists to create designs. Local residents will vote on the painted bike racks to select a Winner.

Artist Statement: This year has been challenging for most, but in the mindsets of it all, I found passion in creating and hope through connecting with my wonderful inspiration, Rachel Entler. My position as an artist for this year's 2020 Brushes with Cancer program has helped me open my eyes and heart and explore my craft once again. Being welcomed into this incredible community has expanded my perspective on the powers of storytelling and creating emotion-driven visual content.
