About MeWhile I've always been making art and new work on a constant basis in the past few years, I have been using mostly friends as models to shoot reference with. I have taken an interest in the camera and having some fun with photography on top of painting. I want to expand on my work and search out great new people to work with, as well as diversify my reference collection and help out some new models who are open to being part of my creating process. I have experience with photography as well, being part of portrait shoots and wedding shoots.
Professionally, I have decided to pursue my career as a painter. As I prepare for my upcoming exhibitions, I am constantly looking for new models to work with, providing variety and new energy to my ever growing body of work.
If you are interested in working together, don't be shy to shoot me a message. I usually do TFP (Time for Print), which means that after we do a shoot, and after I use one of the reference images for a painting or drawing, you will receive a print of it.
I live in the Toronto area, I am also looking to learn some new things and open to collaborate, whether you are a model, a makeup artist, or a photographer. Lets talk and make great things happen.
