What are you currently working on?

I'm currently a full-time Creatives Rebuild New York Teaching Artist at The W.O.W. Project, but when I'm not busy developing and facilitating programs at W.O.W. — I'm working on the 2024 season of Chores Collection 2, reading and researching, and dreaming up projects to come.

Is there any work available to purchase? How else can I support you?

Thank you so much for your love! Please follow me on Instagram and Substack to stay tuned for announcements. <3

What hat size is right for me?

Measure the circumference of your head (the widest part around), and choose the corresponding size from the measurement chart below. If you are in between sizes (ex. 22" or 24"), consider how you like to wear your hair and how tightly you want your hat to fit. Joy is 21.5" and wearing size M in the product photos.

S 20-22 inches
M 22-24 inches
L 24-26 inches
