My personal work is a mix of all mediums and materials as I can't pick just one!

At the Dotsa Bitove Wellness Academy, I bring my drawing, painting, crafting, and art history knowledge to my sessions. Together in my sessions we explore the history of certain art periods (ex. Bauhaus, Impressionism), specific artists (ex: Picasso, Frida Kahlo, Van Gogh), or topical themes (ex. The history of Playing Cards). We then play with these themes and ideas while creating our own, unique works of art.

Creating with persons with dementia is the kind of art-making I love most, and I can thank my 3 years at the Academy for helping me figure that out. Now, I am completing a Master's in Recreation and Leisure at the University of Waterloo to further inform and pursue my arts-based work with persons with dementia.
