Springwater Park, Springwater, ON

In the Works
Indiginesse: The Art of Contemporary Indigenous Women
Book project currently in research and grant writing stages. The book is part personal account about my relationship with indigenous art and the artists that created it, part art history education and all about bridging the gap between indigenous and non-indegenous people in Canada. It follows the format that the "Indiginesse" art exhibition of 2014 sought to engage community but in a book format for easier distribution across Canadian schools, galleries and an online viewing platform. Writing and production are pending grant results.
