My art is an invitation to come on a journey to the places I have visited and lived in.
A city is something silent and eternal. The crevices, shapes and shadows that make up peoples living spaces are often reflections of their inner worlds. I seek to discover that world and juxtapose it against the beauty and violence of existence.
The city is the star of the show. Sometimes you will find fleeting traces of human presence but most of the time the city speaks for itself. Does the city reveal its secrets? I will let you decide.

I live and work in Toronto. My art is political, being an activist for the rights of minorities and religious freedoms, I have experienced religious violence up close and personally and explore these themes using colour and creativity.
