In my practice, I explore feelings of anxiety and the possibilities of their remediation using a multidisciplinary approach. This includes labour-intensive textile processes, drawings, photography, video, and written works, often including found and vernacular objects or imagery. I am often interested in the quirky and awkward, both in these found objects and in our own personalities. I have recently become interested in what writers of trend pieces are coining the “girly narrative”, which is often argued to be a feminist practice. These narratives take back often sneered upon emotional, vulnerable and fragile qualities of women’s stories and experiences.
In 2011, I graduated from the Alberta College of Art and Design with a BFA in Fibre(with distinction), and am currently attending my second year of University of Manitoba’s Interdisciplinary Master of Fine Arts program. I currently have work in Passive Affections exhibition at PLATFORM centre for photographic arts in Winnipeg, and am collaborating with melinda topilko on Girl Gang Dance Party, a project for Phantom Wing – A Pre-Demolition Project at King Edward School, in Calgary.
I’m originally from Golden, British Columbia, but just moved from Calgary, Alberta, to Winnipeg, Manitoba.
