I was born in Vancouver, B.C. and currently live in Deux-Montagnes, Québec where I works as a freelance writer, designer, and researcher. As an undergraduate I completed a double major in history and visual arts at The University of British Columbia. I received my MFA in 1998 from Vermont College of Norwich University (Montpelier, VT, USA) an institution which has since been renamed Vermont College of Fine Arts. My work is increasingly directed towards writing while my son Samuel is in his early years. In 2000 I began a series of collaborations with my husband, composer Michael Oesterle. We collaborated with the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal for the project (ECM's) Union Libre I which was presented in Quebec city and Montreal. In 2002 a second collaboration for ECM's Union Libre II was shown at Pierre Mercure Hall (Montreal). In 2004 we collaborated again with video artist Frédérique St–Hilaire for the Montreal Biennale 2004 with a multimedia installation. In 2005 I worked with composers Andre Ristic and Oesterle to create an interactive installation for Het Muziekgebouwaan'tij in Amsterdam. I collaborated with Michael, Bonnie Baxter and Michel Beaudry for an arte in situ installation that was part of Fondation Derouin’s, Symposium 2005. Details of these projects can be found in my ARTWORK section.
