I am an emerging Hamilton Artist. I recently graduated from York University's Studio Visual Arts program with honours and have made it my goal to show the world my art. For the past two years I have been part of 11 group shows and 10 solo exhibits. I have curated one group exhibit at the Pearl Company, commissioned to complete over 25 commissions and sold another 85 pieces.
I tend to dabble into all sorts of mediums from intaglio and woodcut printing to painting of all sorts and photography. The themes of my work change as often as my choice of medium; ranging from social comments to contrasting religion and society to pure abstraction.
