Currently living and working in Toronto, Ontario. A mixed media artist, working primarily with oil paints, collaging different spaces together. Recently graduating from OCAD University, May 2023, with an Honors Bachelor of Fine Art Degree. Often, her work plays with both painting and installation to envelop a space; exploring liminal spaces, community connections, and imagined worlds. Her latest series uses the amalgamation of different frames and moments to create a tapestry of stories that describe the generational knowledge and relationship that continues through community.

Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
My work collages images of people that are close to me with imagery of animals. The people are situated in a temporal, liminal space with black and white gilcée photography cut and sewn, suspended in this imaginary space. While based on a photo, each piece is adapted to build the relationship between the audience and the figure. With this work, I am playing with imagery and how I interact with the community that surrounds me.
