PhD in IGS Digital Arts and Humanities, UBC Okanagan


I am a long term visitor on unceded Syilx territory. I am interested in using visual art as a method of getting to know local life forms and as a method of documenting the human experience of living among these life forms.



“I use my creative practice to care for the local flora and fauna. I am interested in encouraging local residents to admire and care for the non-human community which also doubles as self-care.”


“I like to explore the urban and residential areas of Kelowna, B.C., encountering and getting to know the plants and animals I live among.”
