I N S P I R A T I O N
After years working on various construction and building projects, I was confounded by the amount of waste that was being produced. This inspired me to start using this waste to create something meaningful.
I was first inspired to start experimenting with woodcut prints after watching a short documentary on the New York artist Bryan Nash Gill. After many months of testing methods, inks, papers and styles, I came up with what are now my own relief prints. I believe that my product best represents the life and look of each tree through remarkable detail and aesthetic style. These prints are a real representation of the natural beauty that surrounds us, with limited interference on my part. I like to consider myself the middle man between the art of the work and the customer.
With a degree in European Studies and Art History from the University of Guelph, I have taken the road less travelled, exploring the world, and drawing inspiring from the different countries and cultures. Along with my work, I spend four months of the year teaching at a boarding school in Switzerland and traveling with my incredibly loving (and sassy) dog, Sooka.
Me and my workshop are located outside of Guelph, Ontario (Canada)—in Puslinch.
