Recently, her work has been exhibited at Heaven Gallery in Chicago, FOFA Gallery in Montreal, SPACE Gallery in Portland, ME, Ditch Projects in Springfield, OR, and the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle. She is currently Associate Professor of Fibres & Material Practices in the Department of Studio Arts at Concordia University.
