Markmaking as an act of humanity drives my artistic practice. To me, the mark of the human hand is an important emblem of sensory experience in an information age that emphasizes the virtual. Whether the mark is carefully considered and representational, or unstudied and expressionist, it provides a counterpoint to the “0-1-0” culture that seeks to command our presence in the 2000s.
I received my BFA with a Visual Arts major in 2008 from the University of the Fraser Valley in Abbotsford, Canada. I currently combine my artistic practice with full time work as an Educational Advisor at UFV, where I work with students in Fine Arts and Liberal Arts programs.
