For me, creating artwork has been a way of exploring the shadowy places existing within myself. A form of self-discovery in its own way. I've always said that coming up with the ideas behind my paintings is like pulling strange shapes out from a dark corner, not knowing what's coming, but pulling anyway.

I find that the more pieces of art I create, the more confident I become-–but at the same time, the hungrier I become for new projects. I crave to dig deeper. To learn more, and grow outwards as well as inwards. Since both of my parents are artists-–oil painters: my father a master portrait painter and my mother a painter of landscapes, portraits, and famous homes-–it seems as if I have been surrounded by artwork my entire life. This is something I am eternally grateful for.

I was born in Langley British Columbia, grew up in the greater Vancouver area, and am currently living with my wife and son on the outskirts of the Lower mainland.

With every creation comes a mystery to be explored. A story to be experienced. The not knowing of what comes next is what drives me forward. What pushes me to keep creating. To keep learning and growing. To never stop changing.
