User Bio

I am a Canadian artist born in Vancouver and raised in Toronto. In 2007, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Toronto. After a move to London in 2008, I acquired a Bachelor of Fine Arts with First Class Honours from Central Saint Martins. I currently live and work in Vancouver, Canada.

I began my career as a painter, but today my work mostly takes the form of videos or photographs. I often work closely with archival footage; however, my recent projects have moved into the realm of installation and collaboration. I am interested in exploring ideas related to memory, nostalgia and death. Despite these heavy themes, I am generally a very happy person.

I have exhibited my work widely across Europe and North America. Upcoming exhibitions include the Aesthetica Short Film Festival, Santorini Biennale and "Elegia" at Yinka Shonibare's Guest Projects. I was the winner of the Kopparberg Klash and Vice Magazine award for film in 2010. I was artist in residence at Picture Berlin (Berlin, 2012) and Arteles Creative Centre (Finland, 2013)
