I’m an artist and graphic designer born, raised and residing in Edmonton, and I enjoy trying to find a balance between analogue and digital production in my work and play.
Connections to the past are important to me. I collect antique artifacts that have been kept safe by someone who considered them important enough to preserve, but over time have been discarded, sold, and forgotten. I use these to tell or retell a story, a fictional narrative spun from hints in the original documents.
What makes me tick?
the records that people leave
bear witness to events in time, experiencing the moment, capturing the moment, marking the moment
anonymous or not, intentional or not
voices heard, audience varies (throughout points in time)
context interpreted, stories created out of stories intended
leaving their mark, intentionally or not
documentation of a life lived
remnants of a life
communicating with time
unique voice, force of life
energy and spirit
homemade, handmade, genuine, authentic
memory, in time and place
things that others have touched, loved, used
or discarded or not thought about
finding meaning in the remnants, an archive of a time and place
the collective forgets
meaning and passion
trying to find the common ground, the common thread. What we all share in common. Fleeting life.
