Trinity is a young artist living in Santa Cruz, California who is interested in how the physical objects around us can affect and inform our emotions and actions.

She investigates this through creating functional art objects, and observing the various interactions that take place: between the maker and the process, and the viewer and the finished piece. She is fascinated by the intersection of the conceptual and physical, the meditation inducing qualities of labor, and the metaphors prevalent in modes of craft. She is interested in creating and experiencing art that is used, and shows signs of wear because of its intimate and ephemeral nature.

Much of Trinity's pursuits involve resurfacing ancestral wisdom. This often manifests as connecting people across space and time through acts of handiwork and ritual, and remembering that self care and adornment are important parts of treating the individual as part of the larger sacred whole.
