    The Visual Arts Centre Ceramics Artist Residency

    I’m pleased to announce that I am the Ceramic Artist in Residence at the Visual Arts Centre for Winter/Spring 2018. There I will be creating a commisioned mosaic work, and work that is a combination hand-building and throwing to produce sculptural raku.


    The mural project is a continuation of my work that is themed around living with HIV. I am exploring the ideas of body, health and stigma in the form of ceramic murals. These pieces have the theme of “living with HIV/AIDS today,” a commision for ViiV Healthcare with TANK and LNDMRK marketing. Once completed the work will be donated to one of five selected HIV/AIDS service organizations in Canada.


    To complement this more focused work, I will be experimenting with different larger hand-built and thrown forms for raku firing. This work is a continuation of my work using a combination of wheel and hand-building to produce sculptural work for raku firing. The approach to this work is thru play, exploration, and discovery.  Having combined wheel throwing and hand-building during my ceramics training and my first year as a production potter, now I wish to experiment more fully with form, texture and surface. 

    Témoigner pour Agir


    This is an exhibition where I had the great honor and pleasure to work with an extraordinary group of people to co-curate a selection of works focused on personal testimonial. Please come and see the exhibition at the Maison de la culture Frontenac from November 29th to January 21st.


    Témoigner pour Agir is a visual art exhibition by local and international artists who use art to convey their experience as people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, intersex, queer, non-binary or trans, who live with HIV, or who have experience with sex work.
