I employ a diverse array of material processes and conceptual approaches—including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, sewing, weaving, as well as writing—in order to convey the poetics of my lived experiences. As such, I seek beauty in my surroundings and take pleasure in the respite it affords me. I am a proponent of decorative repetition, I champion the power of colour to stir emotions, and I swoon over the use of florid language that elicits forgotten moments or evokes scenes just barely remembered. For the past fifteen years I have made work in relation to public accounts of personal tragedy, and private tales of public spectacle. More recently, however, I have turned my attention inward, drawing meaning from my private life and the domestic struggles that ensue in the space of my home. I am currently writing my first book, Upstairs, which is a meditation on living with young onset Parkinson's Disease through an examination of my home and the items that fill it.
