Printmaking & Collage : A Study of Multiples and Intersections
See it On Campus: Level 1Visitor Info
My print is installed in the zone 4 gallery, fka the faculty gallery. It is a new work that was created specifically for the physical exhibition, and is not presented on this webpage.
My career at ECUAD has been extremely interdisciplinary. Throughout my undergraduate degree I have worked in sculpture, creative writing, book media, printmaking, photography, collage, painting, drawing, and through an intersection of many of these mediums. Throughout my five years at Emily Carr, I have been prolific in my practice and have grown a large portfolio.
My practice is personal, looking inward for concepts to explore. I often interrogate my own experiences through writing and visual language. My work explores the concept of memory, childhood, trauma, and identity. My lifelong struggle with mental and physical illnesses has interested me in the connection between the mind and body, and how art can interact within this realm.
Recently, my practice has been focused on printmaking, photography and collage. I have most recently been using lithography to create prints of original hand-cut collages that use appropriated imagery from various sources. These collages use both humour and surrealism to tackle subject matter like the absurd complexity of life, as well as more arduous topics like personal experience with trauma.
Although I work in an interdisciplinary way, the body of work I have chosen to represent my BFA in the Grad Show is a selection of my work in lithography, book making, and silkscreen. I feel as though these works encompass my practice as they showcase my most prominent mediums. These works are all found photographs, collage, book and print media all in one.

BEWARE OF DOG, 2022
This project is my semester project for my final senior visual arts studio.
BEWARE OF DOG is an installation of select prints, sculptures and unique art objects that explore the themes of childhood trauma, joy, and forgiveness. This installation was a visual facet to hold space for memory and compassion for myself and my family during mine and my sister’s childhoods.
BEWARE OF DOG asks the viewer to contemplate both a genuine warning and the playfulness that encompasses that threat.
