Lives and works in British Columbia, Canada

Bio: I am a visual artist working at the intersection of art and craft practices. My work seeks out the narratives of place and the ways in which craft materials, methods and aesthetics create connection between the landscape (both constructed and natural) and those who dwell there. My projects have included the use of embroidery, string figure making, off-

loom weaving and garment making. As a practice it ranges from labour intensive making processes to ephemeral disturbances in the landscape to community interactions. Born and raised in Wales I made British Columbia, Canada my home in 2000. My work draws upon a strong Welsh heritage of craft making as well as the experiences of moving from 

place to place. I hold a BFA from Emily Carr University and an MFA from the University of Victoria.
