This is the online home for a selection of my artworks and projects. A place to gather, visit, connect. I hope you feel invited to stay a while, enjoy.
I am an interdisciplinary artist, art educator and Iyengar Yoga instructor, based in Victoria, BC, Canada. The traditional lands of the Lekwungen speaking peoples. I am an alumna of Goddard College, Vermont (MFA ‘13) and the Emily Carr University of Art & Design Vancouver, BC (BFA ‘02.) My work has been exhibited in Western Canada, the Netherlands, Sweden and Hong Kong, and is in public collections at the University of Alberta, UBC, SFU and the ACE Hotel in Portland and New York. My work is in private collections worldwide.
My practice is about listening. To this body, to the land and water, to each breath, to others' bodies and breathing, to community. I give what I hear/feel form in ways that often look like; drawing, artist’s books, video, painting and social practice projects.
Thank you for visiting.

I’ve been called a renaissance woman by un ami de Paris. If that means I’m capable of following my heart no matter what, of waking with the sun to gently till the soil, of making poems every night that become song in my sleep, then yes, I’ll be that woman.
I’ll run with it and make marks on paper that become dance, I’ll cry when it’s inappropriate.
I’ll be a renaissance man and a songbird too, just to shake up rigid notions of what’s possible. I’ll lick my hands and smear them on Nepalese paper. I’ll paint calligraphic letters on the bottoms of bare feet. I’ll float in the ocean on my back under the stars.
I’ll be quiet and listen.
