Kandace Creel Falcón

Erhard, MN

Kandace Creel Falcón, Ph.D. (she/they/their) is an interdisciplinary feminist scholar, writer, and visual artist. Their life’s passion grounds the power of narrative for social transformation. As a Xicanx femme feminist, KCF’s work is driven to disrupt conventional notions related to femininity. Drawn to mixed-media methods of painting, printmaking, fabric arts, and writing KCF brings together various mediums to make sense of the world around them.

As a former academic and mostly self-taught visual artist, their work is concerned with home and belonging, and the shifting nature of public/private dichotomies related to domesticity. Born in Kansas, and raised in New Mexico, she is a descendent of Mexican Railroad laboring families who came to Kansas to grow roots. She now lives and works in rural Erhard, MN.
