My journey as an artist has been a meandering one. I have a full-time non-arts career and am pursuing a graduate degree. I return to art to reconcile my lived experiences. I’m an interdisciplinary story teller. I use spoken word, written word, and photo voice. I live in Corner Brook, NL.

I witnessed an ugly event on social media where people were mocked for their grammar during a discussion that greatly impacted them. This is the quickest way to silence people. I hope this blanket will display the beauty in language free of prescribed norms. It is offered as comfort to those who have been mocked, othered, or intentionally misheard.
