I live in Bavon, VA 

with my husband, artist Justin Hunter Allen. We work in a studio room in this farmhouse in Onemo, VA where we also run the gallery project Serendipity: Williams House. Justin also started a white-cube gallery #FFFHEX in the Courthouse. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I was born in Virginia. From 2005-2009 I lived in New York City to study art at the Cooper Union. From 2009-2010 I was a Harriet Hale Woolley Scholar at the Fondation des Etats-Unis in Paris, France. From 2011-2014 we lived in Dallas, TX, where Justin and I co-directed the experimental gallery Studio DTFU and were founding members of the Socialized Contemporary Artists Bureau, a network of artist-run exhibition spaces.
