I am an artist and educator based in Tkaronto. My site-responsive work examines our deep relations with colonial structures and infrastructures through a careful attention to the ground, and the different forms of living and dying within it.

For over eight years, I have worked with soil-derived materials to reflect on the technologies of containment found in the places where I live and work: looking at mines, bodies, nests, vessels, institutions, and land. I hold a Master of Visual Studies from University of Toronto and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from OCAD University. I am currently the Research Associate for the Finding Flowers Project, led by Lisa Myers and Sheila Colla PhD and based at York University. My work has been presented in national and international galleries, public spaces and informal cultural venues.
