Tell us about yourself and work!

I’m a native Torontonian and spent the last three years in Halifax studying to be a librarian. I fell in love with the ocean air and was fortunate enough to recently relocate to the other coast to start a librarian position at Emily Carr University of Art and Design. I’ve been making and selling hand embroidered art since completing my degree in textiles at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2004. More recently I’ve been dabbling in ceramics, letterpress, and screen-printing. I can’t stop making things. When my hands aren’t busy I get restless. As far as I can tell, making things is in my blood.
