I’m a Toronto-born, Cape Town-based artist who paints urban landscapes on handmade gesso panels. My work is a quest for beauty in chaos, and perhaps also for chaos in beauty.
My work is in collections in Cape Town, Johannesburg, New York, London, Boston, Glasgow, Toronto, Stockholm and Mexico City.
I recently got a commission through Instagram, which kicked my ass into starting six other smallish new works that are now in my store. Now I’ve got those done, I’m going back to finishing some other commissions and doing preparatory research for a new exhibition… I’m going to do a nice deep dive on this one and have already ordered and received a nerdy book about Chinese and Japanese printmaking traditions of the twelfth to eighteenth centuries to point me in the right direction…
I completed work on a new iteration of my Feels like home series in 2020, drawing on imagery collected from refugees around the world, for which I was interviewed as part of Tufts University’s Refugee Integration Arts Festival.
