I received my BFA Honours degree from the University of Manitoba in 2009 and have since been the recipient of several grants and public sculpture commissions. My work has been installed internationally and is included in prominent collections. I currently live in Winnipeg.
My new work explores instinct. I am most interested in the dangerous power this subconscious force seems to have over one’s behavior and beliefs. My work digs into my fear of losing self control while also reveling in the complexity of a mind that is far deeper than my surface awareness.
The most exciting challenge in my new work is to transcend the absolute physicality of traditional sculpture. This search is fundamental to my new work. I am always engaged in inventing material and gestural vocabulary that will help me express physically the existential landscape each of us inhabits. I use precise representation as my vocabulary and surreal elements to stress the emotional atmosphere of the work.
