I approach art making from a broad variety of themes, ranging from the fantastical, to critiquing technology, to metaphysical musings, and many things bodily and sexual. However, I recently realized that no matter the theme, the works were always a reflection of where I was in my life path, the present moment as constructed fiction, and the experience of it as a struggle balancing memory, fact and desire.


I received my BFA from Concordia University in 1991 and my MFA from University of New Mexico in 2004 and have exhibited across Canada, the United States, and Europe. I’ve participated in multiple residencies at the Banff Arts Centre, and have exhibited at NCECA in 1995 and the 9e Biennale de Céramique in Trois-Rivières. In 1995 I was the recipient of the Brucebo Canadian-Scandinavian Foundation Award. I have worked as Administrative Director to the Colart Collection, and as assistant to the Montreal artist Yehouda Chaki. Currently, I teach at the University of Western Ontario and maintain a studio in London, Ontario, where I live with my wife and two children.
