Rematriate the land
Through collaboration with Sogorea Te’ Land Trust, community members, land workers and artists, this painting was created to visualize a decolonized and rematriated landscape in deep East Oakland.
Graphic recording-- the live translation of conversations or a presentation into images-- provides a visual guide to help people understand concepts, visualize a process, and remember important milestones. This tool can be used in stakeholder meetings, conferences, workshops, presentations, and classrooms. I find it a really inspiring and effective way of sharing ideas across disciplines or beliefs.
Graphic design can mean so many things... I use it here to say: I love making things that look nice and communicate effectively. Want a logo? Need a t-shirt design? Need marketing materials? I'll make sure to work with you to design something that represents your organization, brand, and passion, and looks NICE.
Illustrated Concepts and Processes
I love using illustration to describe and simplify complex processes. I work to create final illustrations that are digestible by a wide range of audiences while communicating a lot of detail. Need an illustration for a publication? Need an illustration for a presentation? Let's make it happen.
I'm passionate about creating unique ways to share information and ideas. I'm interested in the way we absorb information and love collaborating with people that see and understand the world differently than me. Do you have a curriculum that could use some visual guides? Do you have a workshop you want to develop materials for? Let's do it.
I love rocks and rivers and the beings who depend on them (special shout out to chickens). I’m an illustrator and visual communicator, with an MS in Fluvial Geomorphology, a BA in Geology, and a curiosity in patterns that transcend scale.
I draw to help myself and others visualize our place amidst and dependence on the complex, interconnected web of ecologies and geologies forming this precious planet.
I am committed to practicing visual communication as a tool to heal the harm caused by white-bodied supremacy and extractive capitalism, and to help us envision resilient and generative futures for all beings.
PS. I have recently formed an entity, called Round Water Design, with the purpose: envisioning a healed relationship between humanity and water for the sake of a just and care-based future.
