1-When did you start taking photos? I have been fascinated with photography and cataloguing family photos since I was about 13. I started taking and then also developing my own photos in the dark room when I was about 16. Digital photography came around for me when at 23, and I’ve been wearing out my cameras every since.
2-Have you experimented with other mediums? Absolutely, I am a Mixed Media & Multimedia Visual Artist.
3-What inspires you the most about being a photographer? Immortally encapsulating fleeting moments that not only caught your eye and heart, but also captures a glimpse into the complicated soul of your subject.
4-What are your long term goals for your art career? My long term art career goals balance creating, promoting, recharging and education. Essentially sustainably expanding on my current body of work and continuing towards establishing myself as a Canadian Artist with longevity and a rounded, breadth of work in Fine Art and Photography.
5-What will you being showing and selling at Art World Expo this year? I am currently exhibiting a retrospective. A diverse collection of select works from my portfolio, reflecting on the past few years of continuous work.
