About me

Industry Arts
Location Victoria, BC, Canada
Introduction I am a young woman with a canary. I completed my BA a while ago; English major, Fine Arts minor. I was the assistant-curator at the NAG for a year, which I loved. I lived in Florence, Italy for a month. I make cooking seem effortless to my roommates. I don't like the tactile sensation of chalk. I am currently in love. I want to spend the rest of my life making art, writing, daydreaming, and spending time with all the wonderful people I have in my life.
