Artist member since 2018
My work explores nature and it's pervasive place in the urban landscape. Soft edges, hard lines, organic shapes and deliberate forms all inform this idea of organic amongst the structured. By exploring the application of the paint on the canvas, board or panel, the act of deliberate mark making dictates the progression of the piece. I am a regular exhibitor at Cobalt Gallery in Toronto and have selected works in collections in the US and Britain.

What kind of artwork do you have in your home?
I have a lot of work by artists I know personally. I love prints, but one of my favourites is a street art piece I got in Cleveland of a green bird
