With roots from Grande Cache, Alberta and currently living in Edmonton, Alberta . I just finished my Fine Arts degree at the University of Alberta. As a conceptual and visual artist, I specialize in painting and intermedia art practises. My focus is in performance and creating wearable art, serving as an extension of identity and experience. The physical interaction of the art with the body functions as the performance element, the temporal and temporary portion which only exists in the moment. I am also interested in how the passage of time impacts people, as well as how things exist within the context of their environments. Inspiration often comes from myths and fairytales, combining metaphor and reality. Childhood provides me with many found objects, also a source of inspiration and meaning, while creating a dialogue that generates an awareness of what is perceived as the “other ” in society. This awareness questions what is considered normal.
