i'm a twin (non-identical), a taurus and a mixed media collage artist
Inspired by surrealism, my collages often feature bodies, landscapes or references to nature using painting and drawing media. Since 2013 I have been privileged to facilitate art workshops in high schools in Tiohtiá:ke/Montreal and Northern First Nations communities.
I have a BFA in Film Production so when i'm not collaging you can find me on a film set.
