Statement

I’m an Edmonton area based visual artist and have been active in local and international art scenes for 30 years. I work with photography, printmaking, photobased media, mixed media and collage. My work has been exhibited internationally, has been purchased for several public and private collections, and has been featured in a variety of publications.

Each piece is based on exploring our interaction with everyday forms of visual communication. The subjects of my images are developed primarily from the observation and collection of consumer packaging and environmental graphics. I’m inspired by familiar objects with words and symbols that have become obscured or distorted in some way. I recreate these compromised items to present them in a new light. The value of these objects, relative to the message they once carried, has been lost. They now take on an aesthetic value of their own, either in their appearance or in the reinterpretation of their message.
