My glass practice is based first and foremost on the connection I have with the Albertan landscape that I grew up in. The myriad experiences of living in a place full of contrasting geographical locations, cultures, and peoples have given me a desire to explore the ideas of home, belonging, and placemaking within my work. Narratives (collective, individual, and fictional) become key to describing the nuanced dialogue between people and the places they experience within Alberta.
