I am a  self-taught artist based in Vancouver, BC. My foray into creative work began gradually after the onset of chronic illness and disability several years ago. Although my initial creative focus was writing, visual art has been my focus since 2014. Collage has organically become my medium of choice. The frequent use of text and paint are relatively unique aspects of my collage work.

I am innately drawn to the use of collage – the piecing together of disparate elements to form a new meaning and aesthetic. I create layered narratives rooted in my relationship to myself and/or the world. Meaning tends to reveal itself obliquely in my art, often through the use of metaphor. Emotion and meaning are central to my work, but composition and aesthetics are equally important. Though much of my art is dark, this is balanced by a subset of my art that incorporates characters and humour.

Since 2017, I have searched for opportunities to share my work in ways that feel personally meaningful, including several group exhibitions specific to illness and disability, Outsider art, and collage. I had my first two-person exhibitions in 2021, both featuring collage artists.

I acknowledge with gratitude and respect that I reside on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəyəm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səlílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
