My work calls on fig­ure paint­ing’s ca­pac­ity to con­jure both con­tem­po­rary and his­tor­i­cal nar­ra­tives. I con­struct my scenes by stag­ing pho­to­shoots and then dig­i­tally ma­nip­u­lat­ing the images, which I then use as ref­er­ence in the stu­dio. Re­oc­cur­ring themes in my work in­clude ten­sions within re­la­tion­ships, pres­ence and ab­sence be­tween in­di­vid­u­als, and sym­bio­sis of par­ents and chil­dren. My most re­cent paint­ings en­gage with ideas of home and per­ma­nence, in­va­sive­ness and tem­po­ral­ity through the frame­work of Cana­dian real estate prac­tices.
