I am working towards getting my degree in Industrial Design from Emily Carr and have been a practicing artist and maker for most of my life. I was born and raised in Vancouver and find a lot of artistic inspiration from the natural environment around me. I find a lot of happiness and fulfillment from working in creative fields and facilitating an environment for others to develop and discover their artistic potential. I am always looking for new ways to implement art and design into my life and really value working alongside other artists and like-minded people. I’ve developed a passion working with children and am looking forward to the creative journeys I will embark on with Arts Umbrella.
