I am a western girl, born in Calgary, Alberta where travelling under land bridges for animals on route to Banff and enjoying a picnic on Lake Minnewanka was family time. Growing up in the Niagara Region meant frequent excursions to Niagara Falls and the Niagara Escarpment to entertain family and friends and to attend reunions at Queenston Heights where the family ties ran very deep. The summers of my youth were immersed in the Kawartha Lakes in Ontario. For these blessings of early life, I am eternally grateful.
Deeply and intimately connected with my environment and inspired by the beauty and power of land, body and nature,
I create expressions of dance, photography and | or film, seeking to integrate life and art, make meaningful connections between my self and my environment and to share the beauty of the world that surrounds me.
Now living near Pelee Island in Ontario, I immerse myself in The Okanagan Valley in British Columbia.
