This is a view from my studio window.
I am an artist, illustrator, arts educator and community collaborator working and living in central Oshawa. Art has become many things for me - a service I offer, an experience to share in academic settings. But before any of these things it serves as a place to put the parts of myself that have nowhere else to go. I recognize how lucky I am to have this outlet. That is why many of my favourite projects involve working collaboratively with the public to help individuals find a place to put their stories, express their identity, see themselves represented and share their experiences.
If you are looking for an artist to collaborate with for the purpose of developing a community collaborative or community engagement project please reach out to me. I am always looking for new ways to take part in collaborative projects as an artist and arts educator who works with post secondary art students. If it turns out that I am not a fit for your project I will do my best to put you in touch with other creative teams or individuals. If you are looking for someone to design lesson plans, creative exercise packages, provide in-person or distanced creative experiences for a group or individual. If you would like to have an image created for personal or commercial use - I would like to hear from you!
