My art career started after completing my Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Mount Allison University and ultimately deciding not to pursue Law School. I then completed a Diploma in Graphic Design from Mckenzie College School of Art and Design, and it is there that my love for fine art was rekindled.
My four years studying philosophy had a major impact on my artistic outlook. I was most interested in the study of paradox, and the differing views of them from many different philosophers. It is from these four years that I have taken up interest in communicating the bridges between reality and delusion; chaos and clarity, rationalism and empiricism; and most importantly, the notion that the self is a constantly changing entity that is shaped from experience. Interesting enough, I would argue that one of the most important parts of my artistic outlook developed before I was ever serious about art itself.
Recently, my work has been subject to the concept of constraint. I try and explore the emotion that comes with being constrained by physical, mental, environmental, political, and economical realities that many of us suffer from every day. Many of these emotions have been the product of spending a small amount of time in East Africa, and have had a major impact on my art.
