This image is a compilation of 2448 individual images placed in specific areas to create a shape prominent in my work. Each image is of legs with 13 different coloured socks moving in an indicated direction, with one colour making the shape. The shape is the geographic area where I grew up and I explore the connections I have in that area in my work. 2016.
This show marked the end of my highschool career. Portfolio Day is an annual event at the Etobicoke School of the Arts, where 60 university representatives from around the world come and speak with grade 12 students. My photography prints took up 1/3rd of the gymnasium and were printed up to 7ft tall. This exhibit allowed me to express my love for art and share it with the world.
This show was my first solo exhibition. It was held at the Les Enfants Terribles Gallery in Toronto. It allowed me to showcase my print work in an intimate setting.
This show was created in collaboration with Doors Open TO, Canada 150, and the City of Toronto. The photographs exhibited are meant to highlight the change in landscapes since Toronto Artist Clara Harris painted them in the early 1900's. This show was met with great feedback and interest.

Students from Etobicoke School of the Arts we're invited to help build art for Canada House in Rio for the 2016 Olympics. We got into the nitty gritty of building, painting, glueing, and screening the pieces pretty quickly. This experience was documented in 2 CBC articles.

This book was created to showcase my Sunset Trailer Park Series. This series documents the way others can individualise a home outside of their own. This 'second home' for many is an escape and is used to relax. Documentation is important because it gives life to the neighborhood of Sunset Trailer Park.
These images are from my curation work at Montgomery's Inn in Toronto. I lead the selection, hanging, and execution of a grade 10 & 12 show.
