Sharing time and space with others to create art and food, particularly in community settings, propels me to consider and experiment with an ever-expanding array of talented collaborators, ideas, and mediums. Working with acrylics, plants, rust, textiles and found objects, I document what I grow, cook and forage through mono-printing, eco and rust dyeing, installation, and conversation.
I am also the founder and co-facilitator of Alchemy, an international artist-led residency that takes place annually on the Toronto Islands and rural Prince Edward County, Ontario. Visit makealchemy.com for more about this unique residency that runs at the intersections of culinary and creative practices and fueled by community engagement.
A visual artist, gardener and trained chef, my work explores the fertile common ground between artistic practices, communities and the sharing of food and dialogue.
I am always ready to look at new ways to document the intersection between creative practices, communities and food. A well seasoned freelance policy and communications advisor to non-profits, primarily in the health sector, I have come to understand how these seemingly disparate aspects of my life and work come together as a force for good.
