I am a creative and passionate artist-educator, with a dedication to inspiring persistent and resilient learners. Through my teaching practice I strive to help students reach their highest potential by becoming more creative thinkers.
I am an, artist-first, Artist Educator. I always try to keep up with my own artistic practice as a means to both connect to my students and keep connected with myself. I believe that my artistic practice makes me a better educator. My heart belongs to ink and watercolour, but I will always try new things. I like playing with new media and trying my hand at more tactile things like encaustic painting, sculpture, and traditional film photography or cyanotypes.
My art practice usually revolves around identity and the family, but occasionally you'll see sketches and other experimentation.
I am a proud graduate of the Queen's Artist in Community Education Program. I graduated from the Queen's Faculty of Education in 2018 with my Bachelor of Education, and from Trent University in 2017 with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in History. I have teachables in Visual Arts, History, and Junior education.
