As a multidisciplinary eco-feminist artist who nurtures a sense of belonging, Crooks blends art with environmental science, reimagining our relationship with the flora and fauna of home. Traditional art forms and embodied practices like walking and deep listening create biophilic installations, stories and community, while dissolving boundaries between self and other. Rooted in reciprocity and creative play, her work has been exhibited and collected by healing centers, public libraries and private individuals for more than 30 years.

The Jacksonville community is invited  to participate in her journey, The Long Way(t) Home, where her current artwork and research centers on ritual and remembrance, the sense of touch, displacement and attachment.

Moving the Margins’ Artist-in-Residence program has seen unprecedented success. This groundbreaking program, now in its third year, continues to serve as an incubator for artists taking on contemporary themes of justice, leveraging art as a launchpad for dialogue. Each residency allows the artist to collaborate with local change agents to create accessible, immersive art installations and public programming that spark conversation and catalyze our community toward action.

Through a partnership with The Jessie, Crooks’ work is the latest in a series of artist residency projects curated by Moving the Margins and displayed in The Corner Gallery at 40 E. Adams St. in Jacksonville, Fla. The Long Way(t) Home will run May 25, 2024, through Aug. 21, 2024. Gallery hours are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., or by appointment on weekends and after hours. Additional programming facilitated by Moving the Margins occurs monthly at The Corner Gallery and The Jessie.
