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.
I make sculptures that 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 assess 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.
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 to be a part of the Manitoba Touring Show this coming year.
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!
