My art practice is multi-disciplinary, bridging illustration, installation and sculpture in the exploration of constructed and imagined stories we tell about the places we live. I hold a BFA (Interdisciplinary) from NSCAD University and a Diploma in Fine Craft from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design. Since moving to Sydney, Nova Scotia in 2008 my art practice has been sparked by the region’s post-industrial spaces and intersections of natural and built environments. Between 2010 and 2014, I worked as part of the collective Moving Arms II (with Bernie MacCuish), whose performance and installation works replicated, celebrated and subverted Cape Breton tourist culture. My current project, Disturbed Sites, continues to tell stories about Cape Breton, past and present, taking a longer view of history through examinations and interventions into the natural world.
