About Me

I am an artist-educator living in Vancouver. I am interested in challenging hegemonic systems and  imperialist ideas 'quietly' embedded in everyday things--from academic textbooks to kitchy souvenir spoons.  


My critical art making and writing practice explores the cultural production and consumption of knowledge--and exploits the myths, tropes and master narratives that circulate across the cultural imagination.    


My art projects, community workshops and speaking engagements encourage participants to question 'common knowledge' thru a collaborative exploration of Identity, Otherness, Privilege and Belonging.  


I teach writing and design communication in the School of Interactive Arts and Technology at Simon Fraser University.
