So I'm rewriting this one because it's been ages and the rough draft makes 0 sense. The reason why I've been MIA with my ramblings has been due to my second solo show. It happened and it was wonderful. If you're one of the many [...]

I woke up to an amazing email sent half way across the world. Turns out someone is writing about/researching me for their high school project all the way in the states. If you're reading this, I can't promise you that my nonsense will get you [...]

I really want to say how much I enjoy the misspelled spam comments I receive on these posts. Don't you have mad money, Viagra? Yet no one can properly spell your product name. Anyways, these are the type of things I pay attention to both [...]

I figure this is a perfect time to write this since I'm expecting visits today and I'm ridiculously tired. There's a high chance that not much painting will be happening. The exhaustion is rooted with the fact I didn't take a "vacation" this summer as [...]

This post is very relevant the my future plans regarding self portraits. As of today, I have 35 self portraits in the bank. Rembrandt has close to 100. He's dead and I'm 27 so I think I can top the Dutch mirror loving master. That's [...]

This is the first year I haven't celebrated or mentioned Canada Day on my own terms. Not because I hate my country, but because there's a lot of shit happening behind the image of our handsome prime minister. It's been a violent 150 years towards [...]

Your favourite painter is now 27. I've been really exhausted for a few days and I think it's because I've decided to quit coffee. I don't know why I've made this horrible decision but I'm drinking hot leaf juice instead. Being a grown up is [...]

Do old paintings function the same way we see throwback jams from the 90s/00s ? While thinking about the subject of social media and how it impacts my work, I feel I constantly need to produce. Making things isn't an issue, but I feel after [...]
