Sharing time and space with others to create art and food in community settings, propels me to consider and document my work. Working with plants, rust, textiles and found objects, I document what I grow, cook and forage through mono-printing, eco and rust dyeing, installation, and collaboration.
I am also the founder and co-facilitator of Alchemy, an international artist-led residency. Founded on the Toronto Islands in 2015, Alchemy has found a home in rural Prince Edward County, Ontario. Visit makealchemy.com to learn more about this unique residency at the intersections of culinary and creative practices and fueled by community engagement.
A visual artist and chef, my work explores the fertile common ground between artistic practices, communities and the sharing of food and dialogue.
I consider new ways to document the intersection between creative practices, communities and food. A seasoned 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.
Currently behind my work is the consideration of how the daily actions of artists, cooks and makers can have a positive impact on the well being of themselves and others.
