“My work involves the use of a simple weaving technique.  The non- traditional materials that I use put a spin on this ancient tradition and inspire reflection on the past and present.

Currently my work is comprised of materials that record (largely Canadian cultural) information such as paperback novels, 35mm film reel, VHS tape, micro fiche. I am interested in  (re)presenting this information in a pleasing and tactile way to engage both the mind and the body”
