My narrative inquiry is theory-in-action, reflective arts practices through tonal textures of photography and poetry. This autobiography/fictional biography evokes challenging engagement in teaching, learning, and researching. I demonstrate my processes and my autistic student’s journey of allowing a hearing as we ‘take on’ pedagogy of aesthetic experiences that unlock silent meaning within sounds and embodied knowing through corporeal expression in reflective, integrated arts experiences.

I am a musician, poet, photographer, and educator with experience in Special Education. In my narrative, arts-based inquiry, knowing who I am as an artist/learner/educator means researching my embodied voice, developing imaginative portals around borders of my identities that blur structures of accepted and expected schemes of learning. I am a fifth year PhD Candidate in Arts Education, Simon Fraser University, Canada. I am an instructor at SFU, and a mother of four sons.
