I am a Canadian artist of Norwegian and British descent, and my practice has been deeply rooted in my birth town of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.  The majority of my creative work over the past two decades explores how social anxiety can have a disruptive, paradoxical, yet also generative effect on how people inhabit public or private space.  I have subsequently made work spanning large scale installation, drawing, assemblage as well as song and performance works reflecting this interest.  These projects have included a series of performance structures that limit contact between audience and performer, several site-specific song writing and theatre works, and social experiments such as an “not psychic’ booth that allows for unique exchanges between strangers. Recently I have been exploring the introverted aspects of drawing versus its capacity as social language.  In addition to this, I am a founding member of TH&B, a 4-person artist collective dedicated to site-responsive art installations and social engagements that highlight the urban and natural infrastructures surrounding the Great Lakes—the largest freshwater lake system on earth—lying on the US/Canada border.  I also contribute to a story-telling collective called Hamilton 7, and run a weekly singlng collective called Tuesday Choir.  Thoughout these endeavors, is a commitment to projects and collaborations which use art in non-commodified ways as tools of connectivity, wellness, and storytelling.
