I pursued the visual arts as a young child and continued with elective fine art courses throughout university. Following graduation, I studied ceramics through private lessons and adult courses at Fanshawe College and the Durham West Art Centre. For a few years, I painted indoor and outdoor murals for private homes and restaurants as a side hustle. Upon returning to Kitchener, ON, I began to share a pottery studio at Globe Studios. While there, I studied painting and experimented with wool fibre as a medium for visual art. Bayfield’s Main Street Gallery launched my professional art career by showing my fibre work in 2015. I was featured as Contemporary Artist at the St. Jacobs Quilt Festival in 2016, and in 2017, had a solo exhibition in Kitchener City Hall’s Rotunda Gallery, with a second at the Blyth Festival Art Gallery in 2018. That same year, I was honoured with a Kingsbrae International Artist Residency in St. Andrews, NB. My work has also been selected for numerous group shows across Ontario. My current focus is to make art sustainable and accessible for all. I believe the climate crisis and mental health crisis we are facing need to be addressed on all levels, and I am exploring what can be done through artistic practice.
