b.1987 Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
After beginning my career as a self-taught artist, I returned to school in 2010 to get a B.F.A. in Art History & Studio Arts at Concordia University.
My dripping (Psychameleon) paintings are really a surreal exploration of painting the body, and how much of the figure can be removed, while still having the beauty of the feminine contours remain apparent. The bold, contrasting colors create an instant connection with the viewer, and the dripping liquid has (at least to me) a calming effect that allows viewers to easily take in the whole image while the figures reveal themselves. My aim is to create what is at its core, essentially traditional content, like figurative painting, in a more modern, less typical way.
