Created for the 2019 Joshua Treenial, THE TENDER(ER) is a series of performative vignettes
chronicling beauty and angst in everyday life using wry humor with feminist overtones. The films were screened on-site inside a contemporary homestead screening shack made of found and recycled materials, thrift store blankets, and hand-sewn felt. A program was posted outside and viewers were invited to sit inside on upholstered tree stumps.

The selected vignettes pay homage to desert pioneers and homesteaders as my everywoman persona— a former city dweller turned modern-day homesteader, adapts to the often inhospitable environment of the desert.
