Kendra Arimoto is a Japanese American femme multi-genre writer, performer, conceptual artist, activist, community builder, wife, and stay-at-home mother to four children (two teenage stepsons, one six-year-old stepdaughter, and one nursing-aged daughter who was born at home). The thematic focus of her work is on the life and development of blended families, Japanese American ancestral memory and history, reconnecting to land and environment, queer motherhood, and the queer woman of color experience. She is currently an Artist-in-Residence-in-Motherhood in Aptos, California, for 2016-2017, a conceptual artist residency that takes place inside her own home and life as a mother (founded and open-sourced by Lenka Clayton).
