Artist Statement

I’m an interdisciplinary artist making work about feelings. I use a variety of media to create immersive installations composed of found objects, handmade embroidery and other textiles, zines, and video. These are heavily based on my personal experiences as a woman with anxiety, but are intended to connect to a viewer in a more expansive way. I often employ exceedingly saccharine “girly” aesthetics and narratives and reclaim maligned forms, such as the selfie. I often play with ambivalent nostalgia through objects, aesthetics and found materials. I love to connect with people through shared experiences and vulnerability. I’m interested in quiet, soft (both literally and not) forms of feminist practice, unicorns, and TMI. While I employ various media, my training is primarily in fibre. I consider craft and domesticity grounding concepts in the work.

I received my BFA (fibre) from the Alberta College of Art + Design in Calgary, Alberta, and completed my MFA (interdisciplinary) at the University of Manitoba. I am currently based out of Winnipeg.
