I’m a Montrealer at heart, living in the UK. I’m also a popcorn addict, dog-lover, foodie, outdoorswoman, feminist, book-fiend, fashion-fond, designer, sculptor, tinkerer, maker, and all-round weirdo.

I work primarily in clay, which is then burnished and smoke fired to create a unique aesthetic.

I focus on the human form, but instinctively veer away from what could be considered a representation of physical perfection. Rather, I am more interested in exploring the profusion of beauty within mood, emotion, and character.

I am captivated by body language and the breadth of human communication, as well as it’s (mis) interpretation.

Over the years, my work has inadvertently mirrored my changing state of mind and therefore could be considered to be somewhat biographical. Each piece is intuitive, and the end result is often as much a surprise to me as it is to someone meeting my pieces for the first time.

I grew up in Montreal, Canada and received a Bachelors in Fine Arts from Concordia University in 2007. I moved to Bristol in 2010.
