is a Toronto-based artist. She studied Visual Arts at York University in Toronto, Canada.
“My obsession with documentation is reflected in my artistic practice. I make art because I want to, but more importantly, I make art because I feel the need to. It is like I’m rushing to write something down on a piece of paper before I forget, before the rushing of the blood or thumping of the heart fades away and disappears completely. I feel a strong need to spill it all out before my imagination alters the purest form of truth, dilutes the authentic emotion until it becomes something else entirely. My artworks represent little pieces of me that have been archived, which otherwise may be forgotten through time. They are the proof of my existence. They become almost like photographic images that captures both the physical and emotional aspects of moments in my life.”
