Trina is an image based concept and installation artist, inserting herself into the American narrative by creating a collage of former memories, current feelings, and her hope for future self. Often re-purposing materials and images from the past, she questions her obsession with connection and the place it holds in the present. She is a self described "intellectual bimbo".
