I am an emerging artist working in altered books, mixed media collage, and photography. I use recycled materials and found objects to create my altered books & collage, combining colour, texture and striking compositions to create imagery that is personal and expresses my love of nature and imagination. I graduated from the Creative Photography program at Humber Collage and have been a photographer for many years. I am self-taught in collage and book arts.
My work is motivated by a need to experiment with different techniques and styles, as well as to explore the spontaneous ideas that come from the visual inspiration of nature, found objects, and connecting with the work of other artists. I love to play with my artwork and find inspiration in the natural world, bright colours, and the magic of every day life.
My work has been shown in Toronto, Vancouver, Salt Lake City, Los Angeles, Portland, San Francisco, and the UK, as well as published in numerous books and magazines. Please see the Exhibition & Features page for full details.
