HELLO! I am a Metis artist born and raised in the Canadian Rockies. 

My creative practice involves the human impact on the environment, focusing on  national parks in Canada. Growing up in Banff National Park has made me focus on the mix between tourism and wildlife and trying to rely the harm that we have on the animals. We need to learn to coexist.

Photography graduate from Emily Carr University of Art & Design in Vancouver BC. Completing my Photography Practicum at the Banff Centre and now trying to navigate a career in this crazy world. I am currently working full time as an artist creating art work for galleries and publications internationally including the 2022 European Cultural Centre alongside the Venice Biennial .

I am also a professional event and headshot photographer! My previous gigs include  Banff Mountain Film & Book Festival, Alvvays and Shred Kelly.

 

If you can't find me in my studio you can find me in the backcountry somewhere or on the water enjoying a nice brew.
