My artwork centres on the concepts of memory, remembrance, history, and storytelling.

In my work as an archivist at the Provincial Archives of Alberta, I found a significant gap in women’s history in archival collections and in mainstream history.

As an artist, I honour these women’s considerable contributions, advocate for their rightful place in history, and encourage women to deposit their own and their foremothers’ records in archives so that we may correct the historical record.
