She has since lived in multiple countries around the world including Thailand, Norway, South Korea and The United States. She obtained her BFA from Concordia University in Montreal. She has always been fascinated by wildlife and enjoys discovering unique line formations and textures formed in nature. For the past few years she has dedicated her artwork to displaying the emotions of humans and animals in a variety of mediums.
I am a multi-disciplinary artist working with themes of wilderness, animal life and the raw elements of nature. The process plays a strong role in my practice as I often work with diverse materials and natural sources. I work closely to topics relating to landscape and wildlife and its correlation to human kind.
I choose to work with media that has the power to move and change. Having this unpredictability gives it a voice of its own and allows it to be adapted to. As my procedure often involves many layers, it generates the mixing of materials and reveals parts of the process within the final product. I am also inspired by the true colour of the natural world. I enjoy finding familiarity in elements and portraying emotion through inanimate objects. My images often evoke story telling and promote observers to reflect on their own thoughts and memories.
