I studied fine arts at the University of Windsor and then completed an MFA at Louisiana State University. I teach Fashion Illustration, Accessory and Textile Design at Ryerson. I have presented at conferences on current trends in illustration, diversity initiatives and I am currently developing a body of work involving non-linear narratives created in the language of fashion textiles and dress. My illustrations have been exhibited internationally and I have been a guest artist for Manolo Blahnik and Jo Malone. I have been published in Education Today and Borealis Magazines. Additionally, I created jewellery collections for designers Saniya Khan and Lovas at Toronto Fashion week.

I am currently developing a body of work entitled "Pecadillos". Using laser cutting, 3 d printing and embroidery to create textiles that tell a story. Using a non-linear structure to the narrative, stories are created in the language of fashion textiles and dress.
