My art practice embraces an everything-but-the-kitchen-sink approach, combining media from print, photography and animation to installation and book arts. My subject matter draws from meteorology and creative non-fiction, resulting in a series of production-based projects housed under the monikerWeather Girl. The most recent phase of Weather Girl addresses the condition and impact of severe weather, which included two storm-chasing expeditions: May 2012 and June 2013.

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo and a member of Loop artist collective. I live in Toronto with my husband and sometimes collaborator, Terry O’Neill and our dog, Lipton.
