Her process centres the use of diverse natural materials, placing emphasis on tactility and inviting slower rhythms. She is the recipient of numerous grants and residencies, having exhibited both within Canada and internationally. Last year during DesignTO, her collaborative project titled “mémoire” was recognized with a ‘Best In Festival: Exhibition’ award. In the upcoming DesignTO Festival 2024, she’ll showcase her works at The Lyceum Gallery in Toronto.
