I am an interdisciplinary performance artist, queer, movement, video, sound maker, and mother of three. I have a PhD from Simon Fraser University and an MFA and BFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. As a practicing artist-scholar and ecofeminist, I contemplate how new technologies, humanity and environment can engage, collaborate and connect to each other through more-than-human shared spaces of temporality. I define the environment as everything that surrounds us,

energy, plants, animals, air, water, land, fire, light, spirituality, dreams, stories, bodies, matter, sound, frequencies, politics, literature and culture.

I am living between two cities: Vancouver, on the unceded Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh territories. and Nelson, which is on the unceded traditional territory of the sn̓ʕay̓ckstx, Sinixt Arrow Lakes and the Yaqan Nukij Lower Kootenay Band peoples. These regions hold five generations of my family’s experience as settlers and my research delves into this history from a place of curiosity with the landscape; co-composing with voice, objects; extraction and surveillance technologies; and site-specific feminist engagements along the Columbia Basin region, the West coast and beyond.

Following a rich genealogy of feminist knowledge production, my work meshes academic and non-academic sources with intersectional and ecological perspectives, to generate a broader conversation within the canon of feminist media art,

celebrating conscious and unconscious moments and the vulnerable spaces of the in-between in which art, performance and life overlap.
