Happu Sad Expression Woman

Photographer

& Art Director

Born and raised in Calgary, I am an emerging artist who recently graduated with a Bachelor of Design, majoring in photography, at the Alberta University of the Arts (formerly ACAD). In recent years, through my interaction with a broader world – one connected through the internet – my interests and artistic practice have begun to include feminism and gender politics. Photography is my way of exploring themes of beauty, societal standards, feminism, and inner conflicts. I enjoy using vibrant aesthetics and comedy as a method of expressing myself in my work. My practice involves story-telling, set building, photography, and photoshop. My goal as an artist is to bring a little laughter into the world while also confronting social issues and my personal hardships.

I am also the creator and director of UNABASHED Art & Style Magazine; a magazine with a focus on local artists, challenging societal standards of beauty, and being true to one’s self.
