ART - PUPPETRY - DESIGN
Welcome to my site
I am a Visual Artist, Designer and Puppeteer. I enjoy collaborating with other artists and community members on a variety of projects, and teaching whenever possible.
I have a Master of Fine Arts in Intermedia from the Unversity of Regina, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Saskatchewan in Printmaking.
I grew up outside the small rural hamlet of Gronlid, Saskatchewan. Closely surrounded by family and nature these two themes are the main influence in my artistic practice.
As an arts educator I have worked as a Printmaking Instructor at both the University of Regina and the Unversity of Saskatchewan. In the communtity I have provided workshops on Puppetry to a variety of ages, and worked with Common Weal Community Arts as part of there Hello In There...Hello Out There project working with senior citsizens.
Since 2012 I have also become more and more interested in puppetry as an art form. I never thought I would find myself working in puppetry, but it is an amazing immersive world. I love fusing my visual arts practice with puppetry, and look forward to where this will take my art in the future.
I am always interested in being apporoached to work on new projects. If you have something you think I may be interested in collaborating on please contact me.
