Ceramics is my medium of choice. Clay connects me with the earth and spirit and the making process grounds me. My sculptures explore elements of nature and the body. I include discarded and found items in my practice and make functional ceramics as well.

I sold my first sculptural piece at 15 and immediately recognized how art objects become a conduit. I thrive in the joy others feel through connecting with my objects.

As a woman, an artist, and a female that has experienced sexual deviance in every decade, I am heavily influenced by my past and the injustices that we continue to face.
At present I find myself assessing and recontextualizing my observations. Some work questions and confronts morality, power roles, patriarchy, and the objectification of women. A prevalent concern given today's current affairs and women's issues, like safety, economic challenges and misogyny.

Louise Joséphine Bourgeois said it best; "Art Is My Sanity" and I agree.

I wish to thank the Manitoba Arts Network for choosing Latent Injuria, 2018, as part of the Manitoba Touring Show for 2020-2021.

I also want to thank MAWA and The Winnipeg Arts Council (WAC) for the grants I have received to date, this year.

I am active in the arts community and a long-standing member of Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA).
