Propelled by a curiosity of the world we inhabit, my practice traverses both the materials which comprise our landscape and the materials that provoke the thinking and making responses of the artist. Through acts of attentiveness, my work considers the reflexive and attentive perspectives that emerge when elements of poetry and visual art are interwoven with place-based responses. 

I engage an intentional intermedia approach that enables an iterative mode of working at an intersection of various media. These include drawing, installation, fibre art, printmaking, creative writing, metal casting, and ceramics. Imbued with intimacy and texture, these materials, when gathered together, can be used as imposition or invitation, can fuel the ego-centric, or bring together a community of like-minds. Offered as an invitation, my practice holds space for dialogue; to share ideas, shift perceptions, and reconsider human relationships with one another and our other-than-human-kin.
