About the Artist
My work is a visual invitation to rest the eyes and the mind amid a culture of busyness and the occasionally overwhelming feeling of living in the digital age.
The intention behind my work is to inspire you to embrace art, texture and colour in your home and life. In my process, I find flow in detailed, repeated mark-making until I sense the time to move to the next series of marks in the mapping of the piece.
I use watercolour, gouache, ink, natural dyes, textiles and found/repurposed material to create playful, intricate pieces.
My colour palette is shaped by the luscious flora, expansive mountains and vast ocean of the west coast and Kootenay regions.
My work is influenced by the female artists of the past who carved their own paths in the male-dominated world of abstract art. These women painted fearlessly and dared to call themselves artists.
My grandmother’s stewardship of the Columbia Valley Wetlands influences me to think about the materials I use and the waste I produce. My practice increasingly considers the sustainability of the source, processing, and waste of materials.
I live and create on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations who have cared for these lands since time immemorial.
I am grateful to be immersed in the nature of this land and continue to listen, learn and take action.
Five percent of my art sales will be donated to supporting indigenous land and ocean stewardship.
