Making art to understand my place in the world, thinking about how I experience reality and time. I have an abiding interest in the restorative power of beauty and how it is perceived. I believe that beauty offers a balm for the anxiety of modern life. Does the world embody beautiful ideas? What is symmetry, what is the memory of a beautiful feeling, how does that relate to mortality and anxiety? My work is by no means an answer but an exploration of the questions. Nature is my cathedral.

I'm terrible at small talk, I'm the one at the party asking what breaks your heart.

Currently in Montreal, after five plus years in the Okanagan, BC. Before that, four decades mostly in Toronto.
