QAW Resident May 2021

“QAW’s mission and priorities absolutely align with the work I’ve been trying to do for years now, and the community I’ve been so lucky to be a part of. I value liberation, community, healing, innovation, and process. One of the most important facets for me has been independent publishing, free of institution and oppression ... I believe in the power of printing. Especially now, in the age of digital surveillance. We’re going to need to spread vital information, dreams, hope, recipes of resiliency.”

I’m a jungle-born, urban transplant advocating for radical soul recovery through the healing arts, transformative justice, community building, and earth stewardship. Mamu, herbalist, aspiring birthworker, and artist weaving a nexus of forgotten dreams, fragmented pottery, mycelial networks, and plant wisdom. Currently I am assisting in the building of Roots2Empower, a community garden for previously incarcerated folk, a teaching artist at JP KIDS ARTS, part of Tooth & Nail Collective, freelance illustrating and designing, and working on personal projects all while studying herbalism, permaculture, divination, and doulaship.
