Art allows for the exploration of materials in an intuitively guided way, for the sake of personal expression and transformation. It also allows for the exploration of communication potentials for sharing knowledge, ideas, emotions and experiences.

My undergraduate and graduate research focused on the physicality of communication and the inseparable relationship of the body and senses in language. Post-colonial and feminist theory underpin my creative work and offer a reclaiming of knowledge through personal, lived experience. The resulting creative works often incorporate found objects and depend on the use of space as installation works that engage the senses. 

Mindfulness practices have been vehicles for integrating the language of the body into my life. I advocate for the use of mindfulness as an important creative tool, and also the use of creativity as a profound skill in life.

I work in mixed-media and installation, often with text components. I also facilitate creative community art projects.
