Statement

I like to reflect joyful memories and positive ideas through my paintings. I believe both the creation and viewing of art can generate real joy and I strive to visually elaborate on that idea. Warm lights and reflections normally find a place in my work due to my love for light and what it represents. Heavy contrasts for emphasis are also a regular motif.  

The idea of a mysterious journey is also a reoccurring theme in my work because the unknown can present hope and wonder. I don’t only want to appeal to the eyes but the mind and imagination as well. I want to take the viewer on an imaginative journey through my pieces.

I am a Canadian artist currently located in Toronto Ontario attending OCAD University with the intent to one day be an artist that can bring some joy to the world.
