I am a visual artist and educator based in Toronto.
My art practice responds to the sites where I work, and it manifests in sculpture, installation, performance, writing and collaborations. My work examines intimate and collective entanglements with colonial institutions and power structures, calling for a careful attention to our ways of relating, thinking, making and consuming in the Anthropocene.
I hold a Master of Visual Studies from the University of Toronto, a Bachelor in Fine Arts from OCAD University, and I am a York University Research Associate for the Finding Flowers Project at the faculty of Environmental and Urban Change. My work has been presented in national and international galleries, public spaces and informal cultural venues.
