about me

a digitally painted portrait of Roz, a Caucasian woman with long brown hair who is smiling. She wears a light blue sweater and the background is decoratively patterned with navy, teal and white leaf shapes.

I’m a visual artist, children’s book author / illustrator, and educator living and working on the traditional territory of the K’ómoks First Nation in Comox Valley, British Columbia.  My own art practice helps me to understand, hold agency within, and navigate the material and emotional world. I believe the opportunity to engage in art making should be accessible to all regardless of socioeconomic status, background, or ability.

In my own work I investigate ideas of human nature and relationship, community, mental health, interconnection, and the natural world through an anti-oppressive and LGBTQI + inclusive feminist lens.

In addition to my own art making I develop and facilitate art workshops and projects for children, youth and community members. Past workshops have centered around themes of inclusion, emotional well-being, skill development and material exploration, beautification of public space, story telling and book making. Please get in touch if you are interested in collaborating.
