Painting has become a holistic practice within my life. Through painting I am interested in bringing balance to the aspects of mind, body and spirit. Creative expression has allowed for a deeper understanding of my indigenous, Syilx and Lekwungen, ancestry by exploring cultural knowledge, land practice and experiential learning. While I am also interested in exploring subjects of dissonance that can disrupt balance within. Themes of energy use, oil and gas, and resource development are areas of inquiry that call into question a sustainable relationship to the environment. While technological mediation upon our social lives have altered our interior lives and the abilities to connect to each other and our environments.
