ART & MARKETING director
A little bit about you:
As an artist, photographer, environmentalist, and activist, I strongly believe that art is perhaps the most important tool in creating change, advocacy and inspiring action. Acknowledging my own agency, I strive to deconstruct and challenge stereotypes and barriers.
Lately, my work and interests revolve around sustainability and slowing down processes. Slow journalism, minimal design and conscious photography are a few of my focuses, all while breaking the cycle of destructive consumerism, such as fast fashion. There is strength and beauty in slowing down, asking questions and being deliberate about what you create and put out into the world.
As a creative, I am always absorbing information and inspiration everywhere I go, and with everything I do. Inspiration can come to me sometimes through unexpected avenues in life and I tend to pull from that when creating. Ultimately, through my work I hope to create and inspire, striving for positive changes in the world around me.
A little bit about your role at PWB:
My role centres on all things creative at PWB. It's my main job to synchronize with all of the wonderful work my fellow teammates do on a regular basis, and present it beautifully. Whether that be designing the PWB bi-annual magazine, managing social media, creating newsletters or updating our website. Everything that goes out into the world needs to be curated and on-brand, and that's where the creative team comes in.
