Biography and Artist Statement
I am an emerging mixed-media artist. I hold a diploma in fine craft from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, and a B.A. from Saint Mary’s University.
The interplay between history, memory and identity is a dominant theme in my mixed-media paintings and collage. Many of my works are narrative based; therefore text often plays a role, either as a design element or as a component of the narrative. I’m inspired by found objects and ephemera, particularly items with an aged patina, such as vintage photographs and maps, bleached bones, rusted metal, and stained, faded and frayed fabrics and documents. Imbued with a history of their own, these items add yet another layer to the story.
