Her imaginative productions have been presented across Canada and the US and she has collaborated with some of Canada’s most celebrated artists including Marie-Josée Chartier, Lorna Crozier, Christopher Dewdney, Aria Evans, David Earle, Ravi Jain, Don McKay, charles c. smith and Michael Greyeyes, among others.
