I began studying art at the University of Regina, Saskatchewan where I was guided by amazingly generous and talented instructors. When the chance to live and work in Japan presented itself I jumped on the opportunity and left my studies in Regina, temporarily. I taught English in Yokohama and Tokyo for just over a year. It was life-changing. I returned to the U of R for one more year of growth and learning, only to seize yet another opportunity to move to Vancouver, BC. After transferring to Emily Carr School of Art and Design I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, majoring in Visual Art.
I have worked in Clay, Metal, Drawing, Sculpture, Mixed media- book drawings, projected images, fabric-sculpture and printmaking. Since graduating, drawing, painting and printmaking have been the main focus of my practice.
