About Me

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see   - Degas


I make primarily photo-based art in a minimalist, abstract style, as well as travel photos and drawings. I've exhibited my work in the Ottawa region, Toronto, Los Angeles and Barcelona. 

My intent is to encourage the viewer to see and appreciate the world in new and unique ways.
