Office Hours: Thursdays 11am-5pm

Bio: I am a 5th-year Fibre and Materials major with a minor in Art History. My work focuses on weaving, papermaking, ecological data reinterpretation, and collaborative incorporations of sound and video. Through my many years of working with student-run organizations, I have aimed to foster an accessible and approachable space for the Fine Arts community. My background is in finance and administration and I have been involved in many student-run groups such as Art Matters, the VAV, and the Fibre Student Association; this has helped me understand the importance of keeping these organizations healthy and ensuring they are serving the community they support. I will always be reachable by email or by visiting during my office hours to discuss FASA or the many ways you can get involved in your Fine Arts Community!
