Nata in Georgia, USA. Cresciuta in provincia di Torino. Diplomata in “Decorazione” all’Accademia Albertina di Belle Arti di Torino. Master in “Visual and Critical Studies” conseguito alla School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC). Il termine adoptic nasce nel 2015 per condividere alcuni aspetti visivo critici della mia adozione internazionale; per farlo i miei studi spaziano dalla teoria della percezione all’autoetnografia passando le arti visive.
