"I have always been a compulsive maker. To produce an object has been the solvent for a curious, racing mind since I was very young. When I realized many of my ideas were difficult to explain in words and that I was often the only one who cared if they came into existence or not, I knew I was an artist. I graduated from Georgian College in Ontario and then NSCAD in Halifax. Both of these educational adventures were incredible, and they left me haunted with the knowledge that you can not learn enough when it comes to art. Since 2001 I have been rooting around in Nova Scotia finding, salvaging, pack ratting, and reinventing objects. Nothing gets my muse going better than a forgotten box of clutter. Or a blank canvas. Or the uncarved block."
