My Practice…

As a multi-hyphenate artist, performer, teacher, visionary and producer, my practice and creative focus fully explore the voice while co-mingling with movement both on the ground and in the air, interweaving the reimaginings of new forms, and imagery in collaboration with like-minded beings. My career as a performer has evolved over time from the more traditional to the innovative, with a concentration on chamber music and notable engagements with the Canadian Opera Company, Hamilton Philharmonic, London Symphonia and the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony. I have commissioned works from several canadian composers and as a recording artist can be heard on the Centrediscs label in My Life in Widening Circles and Hymns of Heaven and Earth.

My Story…

I am a multi-hyphenate artist of hybrid work based in Toronto, Canada. Focusing on the reimagining of performative work in a collaborative, process-driven way, a creative visionary-performer-producer-voice technician that is inspired by the cross-pollination between the worlds of contemporary classical music and opera, contemporary circus arts and contemporary theatre.

With a career of over 30-years that has concentrated on innovative voice performance, voice teaching, and production of several original works, I have a multiplicity of perspectives to redefine and reimagine my artistry and creativity in a post-pandemic world.

‌My creative process begins with the underlying goal of reimagining an existing work, and revisioning that work into a new form by taking a thought-dream-vision and animating it. The Lonely Child project is my current collaborative focus with contemporary circus artists Angola Murdoch and Holly Treddenick.

My next focus, Letters, a project in collaboration with composer Frank Horvat and supported by a Canada council for the arts and the Ontario Arts Council, is a multi-disciplinary music-theatre work spanning the bridges between theatre, opera and the world of improvisation in both the body and the voice.

In a more traditional creative sense, I have been engaged recently as a performer with the Canadian Opera Company, Hamilton Philharmonic, London Symphonia, and the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony. Highly involved in the creation of new music, I have commissioned works from several Canadian composers, and as a recording artist, can be heard on the Centrediscs label in My Life in Widening Circles and Hymns of Heaven and Earth.

I am certified teacher of the Roy Hart Theatre Centre, voice and performance work that connects the mind, body, and soul while exploring the full range of the voice. I use this vehicle to help other artists find their path to creative authenticity as singers and actors.
