I am a Nova Scotia
based visual artist and for many years I worked mainly with black and
white photographs to which l added mixed media surface techniques.

other hand done work that requires time and patience.
I work with themes of love and memory, hope and loss. I am interested
in making the invisible visible, not just as art, but by giving
importance to stories that would otherwise be lost and forgotten.
I also have worked with cloth dolls for many years, incorporating them
into stop motion and other photographic work. I have taught many
workshops and summer schools on pinhole camera’s, stop motion, doll
making, mixed media, and assemblage. I enjoy teaching.
