about me, as an artist

Self Portrait, 2012, paper maché, gouache
I am an emerging artist in my final year of the HBFA program at Lakehead University in Thunder Bay ON. I’m interested in exploring the connections and interplays of nature, society, and human health. I work primarily in mixed and multimedia ceramics, sculpture and installation, sometimes with performance. Sustainable, low impact, and least-toxic methods are preferred. Interactive and community-based work that helps people to engage creatively with social and environmental interests is a priority.

As a former massage therapist and currently a yoga teacher, I marvel at the human body and the potential for exploring our boundless universe within. With my art, I express consternation at our destructive behaviours, celebrate our potential, and invite collaboration both experientially and as research.
