This series is an exploration of the La Cloche landscape in Northern Ontario, made famous by the Group of Seven. As an immigrant, I am continually in the process of developing my Canadian identity, which for me is rooted in relationship to the land. I wondered what I could create if I connected with the same environments that inspired these Canadian art icons?


This series is a continuation of my Chasing Legends body of work, which explores iconic Ontario lanscapes, which inspired the Group of Seven.

This body of work explores the idea of practicing mindfulness using photography. It is about connection to the land that surrounds us in our everyday lives. This work has served me personally as art therapy, as an antidote to technology overload, and as a component of my creative process.  It was inspired by my teaching of creative subjects...The images in this series were all taken near my home in York Region
 

This series plays with perception, inviting the viewer to see objects for more then what they are, engaging their imagination.

This series consists of images captured while kayaking in Muskoka, which is an activity I engage in regularly to reflect and mindfully connect with my environment....These painterly images challenge the viewer's perception by playing with the idea of abstraction versus realism.

This new series of still life images is about the things we collect and how they relate to our memories of experiences the items reference (work in progress).

These high-key, black-and-white photographs document the special bond that develops between a mother and her child through breastfeeding. The images emphasize the beauty and purity of this instinctual, private act, while also testing societal boundaries associated with it.
