What happens when you don’t fit into the world you live in?
You build a new one.
That’s how art-makers like me are made. We construct skyscrapers, cities, whole universes, in our minds and on the page. We are all capable of constructing our own mythology and adjusting our own reality. I choose to communicate my reality through art, because I believe that the visual language is universal.
I began making art as a young child, dissatisfied with the limitations of the world around me, because art offered infinite possibilities. When you create something you are only limited by two things: the skill of your hands, and your imagination. Blessed with the latter, I’ve devoted myself to improving the former, which has become a lifelong journey for me.
I started with private art lessons, and rounded out my education with a fine arts degree in painting and drawing from the Ontario College of Art and Design. After a year abroad, I decide to pursue an education in graphic design at George Brown College.
I believe good design tells a story. I believe art, beautifully made, can change the world.
