Born in Toronto Canada I grew up drawing and painting in a basement room in my families home. In the city at that time a massive urban development was going on. There was constant construction and demolition, a pre gentrified dilapidated west end plus a variety of oddly designed storefronts and signage. I constantly walked and this visually stimulating environment became my education in space, content and color. As a middle school student I was able to visit museum and gallery shows as diverse as Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, William Blake's etchings and Barnett Newman's abstract paintings. These rich experiences formed me in addition to the classic comic book artists of the 70’s who's mark making abilities I worshipped.
