I am a visual artist whose practice involves a close observation of the natural world. In a time of cultural disconnection from nature, my installations and drawings invite slowing down, grounding and reconnection. Often using discarded and overlooked materials, organic materials and materials from my surroundings, I heighten phenomena, bringing attention to changing light and air. Perception, ecological consciousness and seeing cause-and-effect and interconnectedness over time inform my investigations.
I received an MFA from the University of Victoria and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. I have exhibited my work both in Canada and internationally and have been curated into a number of exhibitions. Venues include Unit 17, Vancouver, Wil Aballe Projects, Vancouver, AHVA Gallery at the University of Vancouver, Yamakiwa Gallery, Niigata, Japan, Anna Leonowens Gallery, Halifax, ASPN Gallery, Leipzig, Germany, and Norte Maar, Brooklyn, NY. I have been awarded artist residencies in Colorado, Germany, British Columbia and Japan. In 2017 I was long- listed among six artists for the Vancouver Contemporary Art Award. I am a recipient of Canada Council for the Arts Grants. I gratefully acknowledge that I live and work in the unceded and ancestral Coast Salish territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
