I dedicate my work to developing a distinct and personal voice at the intersection of flamenco, dance, contemporary performance and short film.
My work is driven by the creative possibilities of the flamenco art form, and the stimulating discourse that continues to evolve on topics pertaining to creative freedom within such a structured form that is so deeply rooted in tradition.
I aim to expose the vulnerable, introverted and muted sides of flamenco.
Mostly, I create to satisfy my relentless search for all things beautiful.
As an independent artist, I have been funded by Calgary Arts Development, the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and the Canada Council for the Arts. I am a member of the Canadian Dance Assembly, Canadian Alliance of Dance Artists/West Chapter and Dancers Transition Resource Centre.
My original works have been presented at La Bienal de Flamenco Sevilla, Barcelona's Flamenco Empirico and the Vancouver International Flamenco Festival.
