Born 1983 in Vancouver, Canada.
"Painting is a process. A thickening of the visible that is agitated by an appearance of forms, lines and shapes. Every mark not so much in addition to, but in fundamental transformation of all preceding ones. As this process continues, there is an increasing tension between painter and painting. Material has its stubborn qualities, the composition its own logic. Like a parent bringing up a child, the painter must avoid imposinghis own vision onto the empty canvas, and come to terms with guiding a living organism that has a mind of its own".
