Join us as three RisoLAB Artists in Residence present their own work as well as projects completed during their residencies at the RisoLAB.

She serves as the Grants Officer and Education Director at The Keith Haring Foundation. Her current project, a line of experimental workwear she designs and fabricates herself called OUTFIT, is presented in the form of a mail order economy, the first catalogue of which she produced through her residency at SVA's RisoLab.
