A self-proclaimed illustrator since the age of five, I continue to make images by pushing a pencil, but more so these days by pushing pixels. I’m most passionate about creating my art using digital photography and photo-manipulation.
My photography explores urban scenes that echo the playgrounds of my youth, mainly focusing on industrial environments and dystopian consumer landscapes. My artwork focuses on common parts of our world that become symbolic, even iconic when rendered within the confines of a photograph. The ability to crop out distractions distills these objects and spaces. When industry clumsily encroaches on nature or where a landscape dotted with empty signs becomes innocuous, I invite the viewer to reconsider our fabricated scenery.
I love the community pro-bono work that I do: teaching digital photography at a community arts centre, making informative videos for Winnipeg’s progressive community, designing for nonprofits and managing social media resources. I will take on commissioned art projects and love collaborating in a variety of ways.
