Stories and News:
My background is as a painter and writer/poet. I will begin an MA program in Creative Arts Therapies: Drama Therapy in 2022 and previously studied Drawing and Painting at OCAD, and psychology at Concordia University. From 2010-2017 I lived abroad in South Korea where I worked as an ESL/EFL teacher. In South Korea I exhibited my work and participated as a local international artist in several artist residency programs. Currently I paint, create books, and develop 'projects' which combine crafts.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

My interdisciplinary practice involves image-making, writing and performance. I am very interested in storytelling and using specific materials to create meaning. My artistic practice extends to bookmaking and installation as well. In March 2020 I completed my first Artists Inspire project making pop-up books with Gr. 1 and 3's and in 2021 I guided gr. 10 students to make their own short artist books where they focused on narrative and artistic materials. For each project I work on, my focus is on the play of materials with meaning. This means that different concepts can be presented or explored in varying ways. I love to develop projects with students in this way as well, using the conceptual aspect as a jumping off point to art-making. Some technical skills I can bring to the classroom include drawing and painting techniques, storytelling, artist-book making and creative writing/poetry. In terms of performance I am interested in public interaction, poetry, and experimental theatre.
