Spending the majority of her childhood camping, hiking and skiing, Price generated a true respect and connection with the land that still informs her work today.
Now living in Barrie, Ontario, Price recently completed her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art Media and Design from OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario. A recipient of a 2016 SSHRC national research grant and a 2017 Michael Smith Foreign Study Bursary for her research on how textiles have impacted geography, socially politically, physically and environmentally, Price is currently pursuing her PhD in Cultural Studies at Queen's Univerity.
Price’s practice-led research continues to present narratives about the fragility and inter-connectivity of our landscapes. Looking to contemporary landscape theory as well as actor network theory, Price's fascination with environments; urban, rural, suburban or otherwise, stems from a desire to document or map our deeply interconnected ecologies and the agency or lack of agency one might have within these networks.
Also a graduate of the Fine Arts Program at the University of Western Ontario, Price received instruction and mentoring from many nationally recognized artists such as Duncan De Kergommeaux, Sheila Butler, Wyn Geleynse, Colette Urban, Kim Moodie, Helmut Becker, and curator Barbara Fischer.
