As a young visual artist, growing up in Southwestern Ontario I was always sensitive and receptive in how the natural world, particularly forests and the wilderness sharpened my perception and experience of being. My approach can be identified as an art form based on research, an exercise in mapping a real or a fictional world, where nature and our presence as humans interact. My artwork explores identity as a construct of time and space, in sometimes surprising and playful ways. Connections among all things and disciplines become apparent and shape our cultural identity.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Waterloo and worked with Sculptor, Ernest Daetwyler for several years on public art projects. I have exhibited my artwork in Southwestern and Central Ontario, including Gallery Stratford, and the Norman Felix Gallery in Toronto and have been teaching visual art since 2013.
