I am an independent curator and artist with a keen interest in interdisciplinary collaboration. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Criticism and Curatorial practice from OCAD University. My recent work involves printmaking, stop-motion animation and performance. Since 2010, I have worked with anthocyanin pigment from blueberries in printmaking, and stop-motion animation. My participatory performances involve sharing berries and other food items in social gatherings reflecting on the value found in place and displacement; straining and absorbing. I have exhibited my work in solo and group exhibitions in venues including Urban Shaman (Winnipeg), Art Gallery of Peterborough and the Art Gallery of Ontario. My writings have been published in a number of exhibition publications in addition to the journal Senses and Society, C Magazine and FUSE Magazine. I am based in Port Severn and Toronto, Ontario and a member of Beausoleil First Nation.
