I graduated with a BFA (Hons), from the University of Manitoba. Art has been a passion of mine since I first made a mud pie and picked up a pencil. I sold my first sculptural piece to Eddie Keen in 1985 when I resided in AB and immediately fell in love with the connection I could make to another, through making.
My sculptures explore elements of nature and the body. I include discarded and found objects in my practice and make functional ceramics as well.
As a woman, an artist, and a female that has experienced sexual deviance in every decade, I am heavily influenced by my past.
At present I find myself assessing and recontextualizing my observations. The result: some work questions and confronts morality, power roles, patriarchy, and the objectification of women. A prevalent concern, given today's current affairs
regarding women's issues like safety and economic challenges.
Ceramics is my medium of choice. Clay connects me with the earth and spirit and the making process grounds me; "Art is my Sanity".
I wish to thank the Manitoba Arts Network for choosing Latent Injuria, 2018, as part of the Manitoba Touring Show. https://manitobaartsnetwork.ca/touring-exhibitions/
I am active in the community and a long-standing member of Mentoring Artists for Women's Art (MAWA).
You can find me instructing at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. Interested in getting your hands dirty? Hope to see you there!
