My art practice is directly influenced by my personal history and culture. Growing up, I moved to different countries every few years. My surroundings were always new and there was never enough time to form roots in one particular place. Mobility was inevitable and these experiences have shaped the way I make art.
Drawing from different disciplines, such as geography, architecture, psychology, and technology, I map micro and macro spaces similar to a cartographer. I create meta-maps of topography, movement, and connections creating a sense of location and place. One of our deepest desires is to understand the world around us and our place in it and a vital component to my artistic practice is exploring, storing, and creating a bridge between myself and my surroundings, both personally and culturally.
I have a BA in Philosophy from the University of Toronto and attended York University – Department of Visual Arts. I also have a diploma in 3D Computer Animation from the Toronto Film School.
