about the artist...
I am a compulsive reader of expressions and their beholders. My art reflects this as well as my other compulsion, self analysis. Through a series of portraits, I’ve been trying to express a postmodern reality of the self existing in a state of multiplicity. My work, in content and rendering, shows an artistic neurosis that I had fought early in my development as an artist, but now realize that this honest insecurity is what makes my art genuine. With this very human, very persistent insecurity I’ll continue my attempts to figure out myself and everyone and everything--but hopefully never reach conclusion.
I have recently completed my Bachelor of Fine Arts (Honors) at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario, having previously studied Philosophy and Classical Studies at the University of King’s College in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I am an emerging artist keeping an active practice in Toronto, Ontario, while also working on a Masters of Fine Arts in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute, planning to graduate in 2014.
