I spent a lot of time creating things as a kid. I pursued art post-secondary and received my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Ottawa…and then proceeded to spend the following decade travelling and working in the forestry industry. I’m back in Ottawa now, paintbrush in hand, creating again.
My work revolves around the outdoors, whether it focuses on a memory, a feeling, or a simple representation of a landscape. I am heavily inspired by the flora and fauna of Canada and my experience working in the bush.
As well as my love of photography, my interest in digital manipulation has become more prevalent in my recent work. My process has developed into a more methodical approach; one that combines the simplification of an image and the digital alteration of its colours into a somewhat surreal, yet recognizable landscape.
