Artist Statement:

This work explores Canadian landscape, with a focus on relationships between urban development and the land, and the pursuit of the Canadian wilderness. These interactions are explored on both large and small scales, in populous or remote locations, and is expanding this work to include culturally and geographically unique places in Canada, all through the lens of “accessibility”.

Her work has a particular focus on changing landscapes following development and modernization (clearing land, urban-concentric development, roads and highways) and contrasting this with the high areas of virtually untouched wilderness existing outside of urban development. Furthermore, her work explores contemporary relationships of Canadians with the land: from close mutual relationships, to unsupportable resource use, modern disassociations, to cultivating exploratory, appreciatory and symbiotic relationships with the Canadian wilderness.
