Born in Westlock, Alberta, Canada. Completed the Fine Arts Certificate program at Emily Carr University of Art and Design and has been featured in several group exhibitions since 2008.
My work is a dialogue between humanity and the mechanical environments we have realized to enable our existence. I am especially interested in decommissioned, abandoned, and forgotten objects, sites, and structures. I feel they have something to teach us about self-being, convey urgency, and create an elevated sense of environment.
I prefer to collect source imagery through simple photo techniques. These images; primarily intended to inspire, often get transferred directly into the work in a reconstituted way or simply used as the primary content. Many of these images provide the line and form of my pieces. I react and respond to each stage of my work in progress, usually beginning with only a skeletal framework and idea for the piece.
