A sculptural and installation artist from Toronto, Ontario currently based in Leipzig, Germany, I received my BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCAD University in 2016. I am interested in the remnants of our experiences and the places we visit, both physical and psychological, and often use found materials and encaustic processes in my practice. Found objects intrigue me; they are charged with a residue of an experience often neglected and forgotten. My practice attempts to preserve these neglected memories, to revive something forgotten or unnoticed both in myself and in that which surrounds me. The materials I choose - or those that choose me - in some way resonate with me. I find ways in which I can relate to their lingering essences. Motivated to preserve the essence of these chosen materials, I simultaneously strive to retain their ephemeral quality by using inherently contradictory materials, emphasizing both their vulnerable fragility as well as their resiliency.
