Her early work was inspired by Surrealism, she went on to study and incorporate Tantra into her life and work. In her years in the Caribbean she studied and portrayed the pre-Columbian indigenous culture of the region. She continues to work in many mediums including collage, photography, drawing, sculpture/assemblage, performance arts and video, focusing on the liberation of the feminine.

Institute for Cultural Activism International/ F.I.U.
Connecting Cultural Activists worldwide ~ Accelerating social transformation.
ICAI is a contact point and creative portal nourishing collaboration and dialogue for experiment and action.
Our series “Cultural Activism Seisiún” are live conversations between the public and both leading and emerging cultural activists and collectives worldwide. “CAS” recordings will remain archived and available on the site for future reference.
As the site grows, an index of cultural activists/m will also grow – international listing of individuals and organizations participating in and contributing to activities that highlight and address global issues through strategic and creative intervention. In addition, we will develop a database of cultural activist history, impact, resources and training courses, as a reference for everyone. Please see our “Resources” page.
ICAI is generating a curriculum that will include activism projects, project training methods (ie: problem analysis and deconstruction), contemplative and meditation courses, and community activist network building. We will offer weekly courses, intensive workshops, special retreats (online and in person), and publications (to be available in diverse media).
Dates and times posted on website beginning September, 2020.

“ICAI attends to a growing hunger for cultural assembly and the desire - through art - to affect the social fiber, body politic, global habitat and human rights.”
