Encounters with the phenomenal, ecological, cyclical, interdependent and alive world, as well as the pleasure in handwork and beauty are the driving forces for me as a visual artist. I work in drawing, painting, sculpture and installation. While incorporating natural phenomena, I make shifting light, air and water, and changing passages of time tangible.
I received an MFA from the University of Victoria and a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. I have exhibited both in Canada and internationally and have been curated into a number of exhibitions. Venues include Unit 17, Vancouver, Haida Gwaii Museum, Skidigate, Will Aballe Projects, Vancouver, AHVA Gallery at the University of Vancouver, Yamakiwa Gallery, Niigata, Japan, Anna Leowowens 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 live and work on the unceded and ancestral Coast Salish Territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
