2020 Sobey Art Award!

I am grateful to be one of the 25 recipients across Canada of the Sobey Art Award / Prix Sobey pour les arts 2020! Thank you to Video Pool Media Arts Centre / Jennifer Lee Smith for the heading up the nomination and support over the years - this prairie artist run center is vital to my development.

Details about all the recipients: https://www.gallery.ca/whats-on/sobey-art-award/artists-2020 As well, I would like to thank MAWA Mentoring Artists for Women's Art for a previous nomination. This videostill is from my newest work 'MÆ - Motion Aftereffect' from the performance documentation shot by Heidi Phillips- premiered at Prairie Theatre Exchange.
