About me

I was born in Sackville, New Brunswick, and have lived in Montreal, Toronto, and now Ottawa. Since Mount Allision University was on my doorstep, I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts there, and am proud to have studied under Lauren Harris Jr., Alex Colville, and Ted Pulford. I attended summer courses at the Banff School of Fine Arts, The Art Student League in New York, and the Montréal Museum school of Fine Art and Design.
