RESIDENCIES

 

2013               

 

The Colorado Art Ranch in partnership with the U.S Forest Service’s Aldo Leopold Wilderness Research Institute hosted one-month artist residencies in six different wilderness biomes. My residency took place in the Minnesota–Fresh Water and Deciduous biome where I accompanied a forest ecologist on a 4-day canoe trip and a geologist on a 6-day canoe trip in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness near Ely, Minnesota, US.

 

2012               

 

A Rangeland Residency as part of the Ecotone exhibition organized by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery and the Field Notes Collective. During this residency I created work on site in the park and developed an educational art activity as part of the grade five science based wetland field study.
