I do a lot of different things. I'm currently working with collage, stop-motion animation, zines, painting, and drawing. I approach my art practice as a way of documenting processes of transformation and am interested in its power to expose and heal our fears around change, the unknown, and our capacity for intimacy.
Besides visual art, I'm also finding creative joy in and learning as much as I can about DJing. I'm currently trying to bring life to a radio show called Cake for Breakfast, which I've had in my head for quite some time and I'm so excited to share it with you. Keep an eye out for fresh links and new rewards!
I'm one of those many artists with a day-job that allows me to juuust get by living in Toronto--but support from Patrons allows me to:
- rent a studio space
- purchase supplies and equipment
- have the chance to take workshops
- cover submission fees
- devote time to applying for grants and calls for submissions
- afford laptop repairs or upgrades (cross my heart, knock on wood, pray to Jesus fucking Christ)
- and, obviously, make all the art happen
"Artists need to create on the same scale that society has the capacity to destroy." are the words from a light installation by Lauren Bon (2005), and these words drive me to prioritise my responsibilities as a creator and story-teller. Your support helps me to fulfill this mission by GETTING MORE ART OUT THERE, and for this I am deeply grateful.
