See my Exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo!

Not everyone is from Waterloo, ON so I wanted to share my exhibition at the Button Factory Arts in Waterloo, ON.

The exhibition is from January 17- February 1, 2020.

The group exhibition is called Friends & Lovers and is curated by Tee Kundu.

There is a variety of art forms including photographs, paintings and a community quilt project among others!

I have three works shown at the exhibition. The two smaller photographs are from my Patched series where I embed map paper into areas of the tree where the bark peels always. The larger photograph is titled Nestled and included twisted strips of map paper.

Here is the description of the exhibition:

If love is a feeling and care is an action, they are always engaged in conversation. As we navigate our lives, these conversations become increasingly important in shaping our stories. Drawing on personal lived experiences as archival knowledge of histories and possible futures, our identities are forged through our relationships with one another. Friends & Lovers explores the ways in which care, vulnerability & intimacy contribute to our sense of community. Who are you in love with? And how?

Snow Lake Initiative Mentorship Program

I was recently selected as an emerging artist in the Snow Lake Initiative Mentorship Program by artist Jennifer Hicks!

This is a new mentorship program where an artist is supporting an emerging artist over the period of 3 months totalling 15 hours of meetings and communication.

It is often hard as an emerging artist and you are left with a lot of unanswered questions like how much to price your art?

So excited to get to know Jennifer and I am grateful for this amazing opportunity!
