About

I would love to speak about public art as I have an installation up with another BIPOC artist at studio 531 Architects for the Victoria Arts Council. Also I want to speak about how place making art is very important to community. I create murals, street art and installations for the public to enjoy.

I am a founder and Creative Director for a BIPOC Arts and Performance Collective named MeltshotBrownie. Representation Matters! I want to speak out the art and collective we have made together. The window exhibition is an example of solidarity and community love. It is called Punk Medicine: Urban Living Supplies. We made a modern urban punk room filled with indigenous and Chinese medicines. This project started out as a conversation of how our medicines were appropriated and brought it back to our histories.

MeltshotBrownie Art and Performance Collective

I am a the founder and Creative Director for a BIPOC Art and Performance Collective. This collective is Intergenerational, we support BIPOC artists who are disabled, non binary, houseless and foster skill sets to each other. We include biracial and multiracial youths and created a low barrier membership. Artists pay no fees and we do not require paperwork. We are community minded and collectively we share supplies as we use diverse materials and mediums. I support these artists for free and curate media for them to raise awareness BIPOCS can be professional artists as well. I have done this 6 years and been on call to support the youths who are struggling mentally.
