Artist Statement

I am an emerging Canadian artist who resides in Victoria British Columbia, and I work in a variety of mediums and styles. I work primarily with acrylic paint on canvas, but I also regularly explore other fine arts for self development and inspiration. I am motivated to produce fine art from the love of visual journeys, and the quiet passion of creation. While in the past I have focused heavily on representational works, I am now developing works heavily influenced by color field and paint textures. Currently I am exploring the roles of expressive underpaintings, along with stark lines and edges.

Outside of visual arts I enjoy a number of hobbies. I started playing piano at 6, and still enjoy sitting down at the keyboard and challenging myself with hard pieces. This goes well with my singing, which I regularly performed in front of hundreds, and had the privilege of travelling for internationally. Earlier this year I started a casual flirtation with stand-up comedy, which really complimented my decades long love of writing poetry and fiction. I particularly enjoy writing works of sarcasm sprinkled with profanity, which you will notice if you read the descriptions of my art, though I generally stick to formal prose.

Don’t assume I’m just into the arts, because I’m fairly multifaceted. I find science and technology fascinating, and I’d rather read a textbook than a novel. I’ve worked extensively with the computers and gaming communities, including administering Canada’s second largest server for the second highest selling computer game in history. Overall I’m a fairly complex person who’s not limited to fine arts in the terms of talent or skill.
