Living and working in Toronto

My practice consists of collecting organic remnants and synthetic decay in order to draw out new iterations, connections and regenerations through sculpture-based installations. My carefully considered use of discarded materials in my immediate environment calls into question our human-made demarcations of nature and waste. My site-specific research has taken place in Scotland, California, Yukon and Ontario.
