Artist's Statement: After studying visual arts at the Ontario College of Art (illustration), Wilfrid Laurier University (textile design, painting), and Brock University (drawing, painting, printmaking), I am content to make art and push it to its limits. Art has taught me to look at things and life - really look at them. Bookmaking is a new endeavour, and one that promises to intrigue for many years to come.
