I am an art and design instructor, graphic/web designer, photographer, and professional artist. I have been an active member of the arts community for the past 14 years, am a member of several art galleries and art organizations, have extensive experience exhibiting my work in art galleries, have been nominated for and has won several prestigious art and design awards, and have worked as a graphic/web designer for several large corporations.
I have completed the Graphic Art Production, New Media Communications, and the Applied Photography extension program at Saskatchewan Polytechnic (formerly SIAST) in Regina, Saskatchewan. In addition, I also hold a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree with a double major in painting and printmaking, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a specialization in art history, from the University of Regina. I have completed these programs with distinction, while working full time as a designer.
In 2013, I completed my Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Manitoba, where I graduated with first class honors. During the course of my advanced studies, I focused on interdisciplinary visual art and visual communications, areas of focus that included painting, graphic design, web design, social media, digital print technology, and portraiture.
While at the University of Manitoba, I also completed the Certification in Higher Education Teaching program, where I specialized in teaching pedagogy, university level course development and curriculum design, feedback and assessment, interdisciplinary teaching strategies, and intercultural communication. These teaching skills are reinforced by over 10 years of direct teaching experience, including teaching and developing community workshops, art and design classes and lectures, and experience teaching at a university-level.
I am currently a Graphic Communications instructor at Saskatchewan Polytechnic, and Fine Arts instructor at the Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Center in Regina, Saskatchewan.
