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 moniker Weather Girl. One phase of Weather Girl addressed the condition and impact of severe weather, which included two storm-chasing expeditions, while another looked at the Beaufort Wind Scale. 

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