documentary, and the intermingling of the two. In her animation work, she focuses
on 2D stop motion and computer-assisted animation using materials such as sand,
buttons, and watercolor-painted paper cutouts. Her films have screened throughout
the United States, including at the Athens Film and Video Festival, the Walker Art
Center, and the Cadence Video Poetry Festival in Seattle, WA, where her film won an
award for best collaboration. She was the recipient of a 2017 Jerome Foundation
Film and Video grant.
Through her video production company Green Jeans Media, she produces videos
and animations for nonprofit clients. She also teaches animation and video editing at
community-based organizations. She lives in Louisville, KY with her husband and
