hey, i'm willow

I'm a Chicago-based artist, producer, teaching artist & DJ. I center my work around exploring Black identity, new works and theatre as activism.

I am most passionate about art that challenges preconceived notions about the world and myself, celebrates pieces of my identity, and allows me to be an ally by celebrating pieces of others' identities. For me, art is most powerful when it engages us to build community, to be community, and to consider the lives/experiences of those around us. For me, art is activism. Art is community. 

Currently, I'm Co-Artistic Director & Resident Sound Designer at Artemisia Theatre, a Teaching Artist with Court Theatre, and represented by Dream Team Talent Agency. I'm also a proud member of TSDCA, USITT & IATSE Local 2.
