About Me

I am an artist and art therapist based in Toronto, Canada. I have received a BFA in Drawing and Painting from OCADU (2013) and an Art Therapy certification from the Toronto Art Therapy Institute (2020, DTATI Cand.).

My creative practice is an exploration on themes of transition and movement, vulnerability and resilience through medium, personal history and narrative. Time and self-reflection have given each medium I use its own symbolic meaning, depicting fragments of my inner world and the effect of surrounding environments to the psyche. As I have been using art-making primarily for therapeutic expression, my practices of stained glass and mixed media have generated a dialogue between them, where each medium responds the other to create a sense of balance and harmony.
