My art practice is mash up between popular culture and bio-regionalism. I am strongly influenced by my love of the natural world, of learning a place by exploring it, by observing who I am sharing space with – the animal, bird, insect, and plant life. I am a big fan of GIFs, internet memes, and kitsch. I enjoy infusing my paintings with a sense of joy and a quirky humour.
I have been a practicing artist for over 20 year, with exhibitions across Canada and internationally, including: Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Centre, Buffalo; Canadian Cultural Centre, Paris; The New Gallery, Calgary; Latitude 53, Edmonton; Mercer Union, Toronto; and La Centrale, Montreal. My GIFs were featured as GIF of the Day on the New York art blog Art F City in 2014. My solo exhibition Tap Dancing Seagull and Other Stories, was on display at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario, in the fall of 2020. In 2020 I was also awarded two temporary public art commissions, one for the City of Kingston, and one for Erindale Park in Mississauga. I am a graduate of the University of Guelph (MFA), and Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (BFA).
