Sesnon Intern or Volunteer
Volunteer and Historical Graffiti Research Specialist


I wanted to work for the Sesnon given its rich standing with the UC Santa Cruz campus.  The work displayed here has always amazed me and I wanted to see what it was like to work in a gallery space.

I paint and I work in sculpture to highlight growing political, self and injustices here in America. I try to use my upbringing and understanding of the world as a conduit to express these happenings within art. #blacklivesmatter #womenmatter #inclusion  #intersectionality #unity
