    This image is of a Western Meadowlark nest, a grassland-specific songbird that can be found across the prairies in the summer. Only 25-30% of Canadian grasslands remain, an area that is currently declining due to conversion into agricultural fields and fragmentation due to the construction of...

    Man’s best friend has been known for centuries as the loving, furry dog. Humans have created a strong, unique bond exclusive to canines. The characteristic of caring makes this partnership desirable. A person yearns for the free-zone a dog provides, free from judgement, criticism, rejection,...

    My current PhD research focuses on environmental biosafety of transgenic pea (Pisum sativum L.).

    Suspended' is a lithographic and toner transfer print. It was created as part of my thesis research project that looks into how we understand flesh when it is separated from the body.
