• “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” John Muir
  • This is a gallery of my recent artwork, a collection of projects and sketches. I find inspiration from my neighbourhood, especially from local natural spaces, the urban parks, trails and trees. I studied illustration at Sheridan College and art history at University of Toronto. Now I live, work and teach in Toronto and contribute to the art blog Saw-Whet Studio; and write the art education blog Split Complementary.
  • My images have been used by Kodak Canada, the Toronto Star, Toronto Community Gardens, Urban Outfitters, Society6, Collective Arts Brewing and Michael Roger Press. Some of the people that I've worked with include: the Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation, The Beehive Design Collective, and Toronto Kiwanis.
