about me

photo of Roz, a white woman in her 30s with brown just above shoulder length hair, smiling slightly and looking off to the left. She wears a white sweater and stands in front a a grey tree.

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, psychological, emotional and spiritual layers of the world we inhabit. 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 / diversity 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.
