Her work has been called a “joyous political critique.” As an artist, Sita has built and destroyed a border wall made of piñatas and patterned the walls of a castle conservatory with curry powder. She has worked nationally and internationally using craft, photography, and food to tell the stories of migration and displacement. Sita’s first book, forthcoming from Kaya Press, is about the relationships that inspire and shape our creativity. See more of her work at and
