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, food, texttiles and found objects, I document what I grow, cook and forage through mono printing, abstract painting, ecodyeing and collage.
A visual artist, urban 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 are related as a force for good.
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 www. makealchemy.com for more about this unique residency and how to apply.
