Sharing behind the scenes
of my creative practice
and various things
that I find interesting!






Artist Statement:

My works of art are visual records of the adventures that capture

my daydreams and personal landscapes.

I explore my surroundings with a candid, cinematic and emotional approach.

I live life and photograph it.
Documenting the present that
may hold a code to the past and predictions
for the future in one sliver of time.

coloured in my mind
are filled with questions about sensuality, nature
and the cultural mosaic of Canada.

I want the viewer to experience unexpected picturesque chapters of
imagined narratives with a sense of disorientation and ambiguity.

Everything is interesting to me.

That’s what I'm documenting, expressing and archiving.

Embassy of Ideas

My original manifesto
for my blog written in 
June 2007:
(remains unchanged)


"I believe that anything goes.
You have the freedom
to define your life & personal style
and the license to change your mind
always and often.
Knowledge of our society & culture,
its places, people
and their ideas
empowers all of us.
You are ‘at-liberty’
to create your world."
- Patti Friday
