Colour, texture and form greatly influence my aesthetic as I enjoy the deconstructive qualities of imagery along with its abstraction or even illusion. Consumer culture is a topic I often explore as I find myself questioning the manipulations of marketing and its psychology. I wonder much about the impact we have as humans, both socially and environmentally, so my hope is to enlighten audiences with my work by presenting an appreciation for a new perspective.
Much of my younger years were spent assisting my family’s graphic design and print shop. Many hours collating, printing and binding commercial projects lead to heavy eye lids, however brought to fruition the fascination of imagery and its presentation. The process of design eventually directed me to Ryerson University where I graduated with a bachelor of fine arts in photography and business communications. Further along the development of my work, I also pursued a Masters in Environmental Education.
