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 with another via an object.
I graduated with a BFA (Hons), from the University of Manitoba. As a woman, an artist, and a female that has experienced sexual deviance in every decade, I am heavily influenced by my past.
My sculptures explore elements of nature and the body. I include discarded and found objects in my practice and make functional ceramics as well.
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, and women's issues, like safety, economic challenges and misogyny.
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).
