She is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the University of Missouri & University of Missouri, Kansas City Art Departments, and teaches Fibers at Columbia College (Columbia, MO). Most recently, Armbrust’s mixed media work most often conflates biological and cultural themes in the forms of costumes, dioramas, collages, soft sculpture, and installations. In that work she channels a Rococo spirit to parody human methods of collection, ornamentation, pleasure, play, and seduction.
