Artist Statement

I am always looking for new ways to fulfill my artistic visions, and I have found that 3D spaces give me the ability to bring my art to life in ways that transcend the flat picture plane. Taking advantage of this, I use my past experiences to guide my future investigations, particularly more introspective ones; as an Indigenous woman embarking on a life-long journey to uncover my unknown heritage, I utilize my passion for 3D world building to aid my own process of personal growth. And by using colour, symbolism, and implied narrative, I aim to create visually beautiful stories in hopes of encouraging my audience’s own desire for self discovery.
