THAT'S ME

THAT'S ME

 

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

permanent records

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

makers mark

handcrafted

personal connections

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.
