MURAL ART + DESIGN

Toronto-based artist specializing in custom

large-scale hand-drawn artwork + painted signage.

Long before I was a painter of murals, I was a consummate appreciator of murals, wandering the alleys of my city transfixed by the shapes, colours, symbols, and typographies that create, in their inspired arrangement, a true sense of place wherever they happen.

My favourite thing about the entire idea of commissioned wall artwork is its way of conveying this universal optimism, that anyplace one is drawn, painted, chalked or sprayed with any degree of creativity and style, must be a place worth the effort to create lasting beauty in. It leaves an impression on the beholder in a refreshingly human, enduring way that printed signage just can't touch; they're hand-drawn and personal, easy on the eyes, and most significantly, one-of-a-kind.

Fancy an enchanting read?

I wrote a book and i think you might love it

Once upon a time, mostly for fun but also to flex the skills and affinity for storytelling that I acquired along with my journalism degree, I wrote a novel. In a nutshell, (or clamshell, as it were), Lovesick Little was written as a modern adaptation and novelized tribute to Hans Christian Andersen’s iconically beloved siren story, The Little Mermaid. It’s my favourite fairy tale of all time, and as no one seems to have done anything noteworthy with it since Disney’s 1989 animated masterpiece, I saw fit to dive right in and reimagine the beautifully moving, unexpectedly dark tale of love, sacrifice, and redemption with fresh exuberance. One day, my version of this tale will be a feature film of James Cameron-esque proportions, and you might be very glad that you scored an early signed copy.  Thank you in advance for the support!
