Toronto based Artist, Designer, Educator
By exploring the intersection of sculpture, glass processes and, digital fabrication my work considers physical and emotional intimacy. I examine the relationships we forge as human beings and the longing to understand ourselves by deciphering the world around us.. With my work I seek to disrupt the automatic and defamiliarize the rote, to highlight the intricate facets of our shared yet disparate experiences. Through sculpture, photography and collaborative works I crave discourse and foster mutual understanding.
