She majored in printmaking at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College, Memorial University, in Corner Brook, and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1998. Since then she has worked at a Japanese paper store, the artist-run centre St. Michael’s Printshop, and a commercial gallery. Her primary art practice has been in printmaking, especially etching along with collage. Her works are often humorously titled using puns, idioms, and popular song lyrics.
