About the Artist

My paintings are set on sanded and singed hardwood ply plaques. I create small mementos that have imagery on both the front and reverse, using. I am interested by symbolic use of colour and materials. The plaques are drilled and then woven with wire to create a functional frame, unique to every piece. 

 

I was born in Toronto and raised in Minden Ontario Canada. My studio is based in Cheltenham, United Kingdom. My work is based in nostalgia of growing up in rural Ontario and also the landscapes surrounding my life and heritage in the United Kingdom. I am drawn to lonely and magical landscapes and scenes, and pursue this space in my work.
