I am a Toronto based artist.
My work aims to make the viewer grapple with ideas of identity, desire, and the formation of self in critical years of youth.
Often erratic and raw my work looks at the transformation that occurs between the real and the unreal. The duality of the outer affecting the inner presents itself through the formation of power roles in gender and the formation of identity in youth. In my paintings I allow the real to enter the realm of the unreal and the fantastic. In contrast my photography work serves as a medium that mediates memories of youth through the lens of the camera.
