The Commute bus shelter exhibit provided emerging artists the opportunity to participate in public art and exhibit their artworks on Lekwungen territory. The temporary installation was designed to encourage dialogue and new ways of thinking about neighbourhoods and public spaces, inspire local artists, and cultivate future public artists and audiences.
Three pieces were shown for a year in four month periods. I hoped to re-indigenize Indigenous spaces with Coast Salish art, despite the urban setting.

FOR TIME IMMEMORIAL
2020 marked the ten-year anniversary of the First Peoples House on the campus of the University of Victoria located on Lekwungen territory. This exhibition focuses on Coast Salish title and relationship to land and how this is communicated through art.
Saltwater Woman was featured in UNTIL Issue 8: Relationships. Artists were invited to submit works that explore relationships with human and non-human kin. My piece navigates the role women play in tending to medicines and holding traditional knowledge.
groundwork is a print publication coming out of Open Space's Small Press Fest! Featuring the work of twenty-four local artists and writers, groundwork reflects on our relationships to the land, waters, and plant life around us through poetry, photography, illustration, essays, and a fold-out board game.
Saltwater woman makes another appearance. I love to advocate for the strong women in my community.

To Fish as Formerly tells the story of the SX̱OLE (the Reef Net Fishery) through contemporary art, traditional knowledge and historical documentation. The exhibition shares the story of the efforts of generations of W̱SÁNEĆ people who are revitalizing the belief systems, spirituality, knowledge and practices inherent to the SX̱OLE.
Our BFA group exhibition made up of the UVIC graduating class of art students in 2019. Here you can see my painted records on the far right wall. Our room was the informal "freak out" room.
FIELD GUIDE FOR LISTENERS
Field Guides for Listeners is a multidisciplinary project by Jay White (filmmaker & visual artist) and Jenni Schine (sound artist & community-engaged researcher). Since 2017, Jay and Jenni have taken part in a series of art residencies at the remote Salmon Coast Field Station located in Musgmagw Dzawada’enuwx territory (aka: the Broughton Archipelago, BC). From this experience, they hoped to create a podcast, graphic novel, and installation about salmon health, salmon acquaculture, and the science that takes place far from the eyes (and ears) of most Canadians.
Tiffany Joseph and I were invited to speak at their opening receptions about the connection between environmental restoration and art. My piece "Simultaneity" was shown at this exhibition.
Artists work from W̱SÁNEĆ was shown at the Sidney Museum. The museum wanted to honour the traditional territory on which it resides and celebrate the talented artists of these homelands.
Artist of the Month exhibition at Sidney's own Melinda's Biscotti.
