2022 Artist Enrichment Grant | (Whitesburg) $4,800 to create a series of quilted textile collages that will explore intersecting themes of gender roles, cultural and family inheritances, personal memory, and economic justice. This will prepare her to transition her quilt practice from the private sphere to the public sphere and allow her to develop new skills and ideas to integrate into her community-centered work.
2021 Art Meets Activism Grant | (Whitesburg): $4,496 to lead two improvisational quilting courses for female, non-binary, and trans youth and adults in eastern Kentucky. Activities will provide participants opportunities to heal perfectionism, discuss how creating by hand with discarded materials subverts consumerist culture, broaden their awareness of the history of quilting, and complicate assumptions about who quilts.
