My work considers themes of process and materality with connections to people and plac.e. I explore these themes though the use of locally foraged or kindly gifted farm tools and cooking utensils. My affection for rust and the stories these oxidized objects tell began though a gift of a twisted structual piece of rebar. I am inspired by the unexpected elements of surprise that come with refining repetive processes.
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 cook,my work explores the fertile common ground between communities and the sharing of art, 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.
My work is inspired by how the daily actions of artists, cooks and makers can have a positive impact on the well being of themselves and others.
