Learning to Listen (2020) is a series of three garments that embody and celebrate the landscape that raised me in North Western Ontario. This series is enriched with memories of my childhood and the relationships shaped with all beings involved. I've discovered the vitality of being present, receptive and observant as I gather and the importance of maintaining patience and mindfulness of the resources I've utilized. I've learned the value in listening, for listening leads to curiosity and curiosity leads to discovery. Building a bond with the plant life involved guided me to create clothing made with intention, care and love. While wearing them, I am reminded of how I am and always will be rooted to the land I grew up on.
