I’m a visual artist, children’s book author / illustrator, and educator living and working in the Comox Valley, in 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.
