I am an artist and scholar, and am currently employed as a Teaching Fellow in Design Foundations at the Institute of Creativity and Innovation at Xiamen University in China. I completed a PhD in Visual and Performing Arts at the University of Texas, Dallas, as well as a MA in Communication Design from the Glasgow School of Art and a MA and BA in Philosophy from La Sapienza University of Rome.
I have exhibited my work in several group and solo shows in the USA, UK, Italy, China, and Japan; held teaching appointments at American, European, and Asian universities; presented my artistic projects at international academic conferences; and published articles about my work in peer-reviewed journals.
Feminist theory informs my studio art practice while my artworks provide additional elements to my theoretical investigations into feminism and ecology. I use 2D analogue and digital artistic techniques, feminist philosophy, and ecocriticism to explore the relationship between female subjectivity and her material existence, the ecocritical approach to visual cultures, and the representation of women in cultural productions.
