The artist finds inspiration in the fantastical and the strange parts of life, and they enjoy creating work that brings the viewer out of the current moment. Monsters and various odd critters make frequent appearances in their work, while the use of natural elements and environments serve to ground the subjects in something that feels closer to home.
The artist tends to derive their landscape-based pieces from their upbringing in the regions of Calgary and Canmore. “Strange Trails” was a series of digital paintings finished in 2021, featuring travellers who encounter strange beasts in rather ordinary places.
Digital painting has been the artist’s most recent medium of choice, allowing for plenty of experimentation and play along with their previous experience in traditional painting. Their recent animated work has been granted recognition in the GIRAF Festival of Independent Animation, where their original short film PROGENITOR was officially selected to premiere in late 2022.
