My art practice is informed by both personal and conceptual concerns and is primarily sculpture and installation-based. I am equally invested in the ideas that inspire a project as I am in the processes, materials and craftsmanship that bring those ideas to fruition. My art practice bridges the traditions of sculpture, drawing and writing with the intention of creating complex and engaging artworks.
I studied visual art at Camosun College, Simon Fraser University, and York University where I graduated with an MFA in Visual Art in 2006. My final thesis exhibition received the Samuel Sarick Purchase Award and my MFA thesis dissertation received the York University Thesis Dissertation Prize. I have received scholarships and grants from the BC Arts Council, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), and the Canada Council for the Arts.
I am currently working on a new body of work that explores seeds and the processes of seed dispersal and their metaphorical potential with regards to sculpture, fertility, germination, and transformation.
