I live in a big, busy city. What I try to do with my paintings is create a place of meditative calm amidst the chaos. How does living in today’s world affect how we connect to ourselves, our culture, society, each other? What is the connection between certain shapes and colours, and our emotional, instinctive gut reaction? I don’t paint pictures. I leave my emotions on the canvas.
I have a BFA from the University of Waterloo and work from my studio in Mississauga, Ontario.
