About the artist
Painting and city life are the focus of my creative practice. Urban culture and identity are formed through a city's unique features. Paris has its Eiffel Tower. Vancouver has its W (inspired by Paris' tower) and forests of skyscrapers which create our city of glass. The relationship between the solid, older buildings and those which reflect them is the subject of some of my pieces. The process of reflection has also prompted me to create another body of work, "Looking Back," which examines my Nordic heritage. Along with exhibiting multicultural and urban themed paintings, in 2014 I co-curated the exhibition of 18 female artists entitled, "How Nice to Have a Hobby." I have studied at Emily Carr University of Art (Bachelor of Fine Arts, 2007), in Montreal at Concordia University (Visual Arts and Applied Linguistics (MA)). Additional formal credentials include; teaching certificate, (Professional and French Immersion), BA (French) from Simon Fraser University. All in all, learning for me is a creative restorative process which infuses my practice. Welcome to the Eastside Culture Crawl!
