Since the beginning, I have felt an undeniable urge to cut, sew and rearrange the order of things to create my own tale of beauty. I am a craft-based artist engaged with my inner child, together we explore ethereal and earthly concepts.

 

Like a magpie, I collect and hoard beautiful materials, nature walk finds and all manner of beads, buttons and string. By carefully selecting and combining materials for each piece, I create a detailed vocabulary from which to speak my truth.

 

All of my work is lovingly created in my home studio under a canopy of trees in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
