I am an emerging artist and curator, developing an arts-based research practice that is both performative and autobiographical. In my practice I work towards creating narrative through text, images, objects. Investigating dichotomies such as human-animal or good-bad, I provoke dialogue that questions notions of normativity and the everyday. I use speculation as an artistic trope, but my art practice is rooted in self-reflection. I am interested in collaboration and collective experience, collective memory, and social repair. My practice challenges concepts of craft and performance through stop-motion documentation, drawing, writing, photography, and installation.

As a curator, I reflect upon sometimes confounded relationships, miscommunications and happy mistakes, creating an experience of wonder, understanding and healthy confusion. I am currently based in Toronto.
