My photography explores the home as a site for both constructing and constricting identity. Recently, I have begun to consider the home as a site for social change.
My work has been exhibited locally and internationally, including in New York City, and is included in The M Word: Real Mothers in Contemporary Art (2011). I was named a 2011 Flash Forward Emerging Photographer by the Magenta Foundation and was also named a Critical Mass Finalist by Photolucida in both 2011 and 2012.
I am available for commissions in the Greater Toronto Area and Tri-Cities Area.
