About the artist
I am a painter/ textile artist living in East Vancouver- My focus is both natural dyeing using wildcrafted pigments and painting with botanical drawing inks I make. I ethically wildcraft many dyes I use from alleyways in East Vancouver and the woods surrounding the city. My practice of making and using botanical inks started when I realized my textile and painting work were divorced from one another- and that my wildcrafting practice could cross over to my painting works. I went to university at UBC Okanagan (Fine Arts with a major in sculpture) as well as the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson for their textile program.
