Where do you currently live?
Tell us the best thing about that city.
It’s feels very rural but I can be in Vancouver for a city fix in just over an hour. I love living on a river and I love all the food that grows around here.
If you didn’t live there you’d love to live…..
Guelph, On. to be close to my family
Outside of ceramic art what other types of art/design/fashion etc are you drawn to and does it influence your work?
Textiles. There’s a lot of cross-over in the way I print on clay to printed fabrics (particularly the slab work)
If you couldn’t be an artist next best job would be:
Some sort of international development
What’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve done in the name of art?
Dressed up like Sandra Schmerler
No cheating what’s the book beside your bed?
Purity by Jonathan Franzen
If you could exhibit your work alongside any artist, alive or dead who would you want to show with?
I'd do a project with Dutch designer Hella Jongerius
Favorite thing to listen to in the studio:
I usually listen to CBC radio in the morning and a podcast or music in the afternoon
Creative blocks? How do you fix them?
A change of scenery- get out of the studio
Do you have a super power? If yes what? If no what super power would you choose?
No super powers. I wish I could turn water into wine.
One goal, art related or otherwise, that you want to accomplish before you die?
Go over Niagara Falls in a barrel.
