BIOGRAPHY "I was born in London, Ontario. Expressing interest in a career in art, I attended Western University and achieved my Bachelor of Fine Arts, specializing in printmaking for its laborious and mechanical charm. I then decided to continue education in hopes of further developing my identity in the art world. The pursuit brought me to the Craft and Design Bachelor program at Sheridan College. I specialized in glass kilnforming, which includes kilncasting, fusing, enamel and silver stain painting. Enamoured by the tireless labour and satisfying outcomes, I developed a fiery passion for glassmaking.
During my studies of both fine art and craft, I found myself drawn to hybrid processes between the two. My time at UWO cultivated my understanding of complex concepts and visual expression through printmaking, and my time at Sheridan College equipped me with specialized skills in using glass as a medium. I am very passionate about juxtaposing these two processes, both considered craft methods but containing wondrous capacity for contemporary conversation through the material and its mark.
After eight years of post-secondary education, I still find that I don't really belong anywhere but in my own unique hybrid space, and I am determined this will be my strength. I've learned an incredible amount and have grown into who I am today. I still practice glassmaking when I can while I conduct a print-on-demand business called Spicy Honey Heart, a branch of Willowind Studios."
