Pooks has studied Fine Arts at Fanshawe College and Art History at Western University. She has continued to build her skills and develop her technique at the New School of Colour since 2011, and she shows work frequently at local art exhibitions. She is also an active blogger.
Pooks uses art to say what she wouldn’t say verbally. At the New School of Colour, she also enjoys watching everyone else’s growth and progress, “like watching a garden.”
