I like exploring the spaces inherently found corelating within certain dichotomies (self/other, temporal/timeless, truth/fiction, right/wrong). Resultantly, my praxis focuses on the inner and outer connections that can be made pushing at the edges of the barriers surrounding ‘sticky’ subjects (such as trauma, identity, love, and death).
For the past 15 years, I’ve been integrating my life and works with social practice and community engagement, mostly through the use of interactive performance, photography, video, mixed media, and sound. To examplify this: WHAT IS LOVE investigates individual understandings and experiences of the word ‘love’, MIRRORFACE examines micro-expressions portraying ideas of strength in search of autonomous belonging, IT'S A SIGN depicts spacious relics of man’s imprint on nature, HIT ME exposes gendered narratives in the lyrics of many popular songs, and, most recently, I made DEATH CONVERSATION GAME to assist myself, and others, in facilitating open conversations on death.
Born on The Farm in Tennessee, I was raised in Ontario and Zimbabwe, and currently reside on the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and Sel̓íl̓witulh Nations (Vancouver Canada).
I (she/they) work from an intersectional feminist perspective valuing equity, inclusive of all genders, sexual orientations, abilities, races, religions, and classes.
