I have, over the years, had an active and varied career in art from directing the Fibre Exchange at The Banff Centre, to teaching in education at the Art Gallery of Ontario and now working as Assistant Professor in Cross Disciplinary Art Practices at OCADU, as research fellow at NSCAD, and as Artistic Director for the feminist community-based program WIAprojects where I curate exhibits, program events, and publish monographs.
As a queer disability performance and visual artist, I have exhibited and performed across Canada and internationally, solo and as ARTIFACTS with Leena Raudvee. My current visual work, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts, explores “COVID 19 Anxiety” and, in performance in pandemic isolation, I collaborate with UK artist Alisa Oleva on international WhatsApp walks.
