Life often feels like theater. Growing up in Buffalo, New York instilled a strong sense of faded glory being reborn, tragedy to comedy, gilded to grit. I love to explore the drama of light, movement, and texture to create dramatic scenes of common subjects using acrylic medium.

I tend to focus on natural and urban environments in my work and am greatly influenced by my experiences as a Toronto forester and my life in Buffalo where art deco and symbolism are prominent. Always pulled between different worlds, I am also interested in using differently styles, including impressionism and realism to achive my main goal of depicting the drama and beauty that exists around us, all the time.
