Art Media: mixed media collage
Artist Bio: My work blends paper with ink, pencil and watercolour to create images that verge on memories real or imagined; glimpses of something happening that is just out of reach and perhaps even understanding. My works focus on the creation of image-based narratives founded in fables that explore dreams, nightmares, memories of times passed and those yet to be experienced; remembering, searching, questioning, longing and losing. I attempt in all of my works to above all, create relationships; between images, between myself and the pieces as I’m creating, and the potential relationship that can occur between the viewer and the piece once it is on the wall.

More recent works have explored anatomical images in an attempt to make them a central character in their own story. I feel that the stories of a body are the stories of our world.

I have been putting glue to paper since I can remember. Having been born in the prairies of Saskatchewan to a Alsatian father, Acadian mother, and now living in Waterloo via Toronto, I am convinced that the puzzle that is my history was the founding of my fascination with bringing disparate images into one cohesive whole.
