Sourcing materials from relevant habitats, I create frameworks for progression, which are advanced by the contributions of people, creatures, and natural elements. It is my work’s connection to an external reality which challenges it and keeps it alive. It is empathetic to its gallery. Though it does not have a heart beat per se, many of the pieces are living, in that they are in a constant state of growth or change, with any force potentially modifying what a previous one has done. In this way it validates and encourages a flux in consciousness, rather than providing an ossified bed.
My work has appeared in and on the cover of numerous literary publications, including Canada's iconic Room Journal. In 2021, one of my interactive sculptures 'IN YOUR HANDS' was mounted on the West Vancouver waterfront. I was a juror for the 2023 curation of West Vancouver Arts Council exhibits. My upcoming solo show 'TO THE WATERS & THE WILD', will be at the Ptarmigan Art Gallery on Pender Island, BC, featuring works that engage island residents as co-creators, with the theme of the inner child. I am also the Founder and CEO of CultureCreative, a service which pairs artists with organizations for residencies.
I acknowledge that the land on which I work and live is the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Peoples, including SENĆOŦEN speaking W̱SÁNEĆ (Saanich) First Nations and Hul’quimi’num Treaty Group.
