Artist, Creative Director, and Production Designer based in Toronto.

Statement

  • I create Queerscapes. These transporting alternative worlds can be paintings, or films, or masks, or sculptural installations. Throughout my career I've been preoccupied with hybridizing speculative histories and futures. Ghosts, liminal states, and temporal dislocations haunt my early narrative films. New and ongoing multidisciplinary projects orbit in the zone of High Queer Space Opera.
