Collaboration Interests & Artist Statement
As you may notice from this WordPress site and other links, I am interested in engaging with others in creative work (see the About page). I don’t have a particular thing in mind and would rather just see what happens. Why try to predetermine anything? it seems counter-intuitive to try and predict or control creative processes. If you are interested or curious or just want to explore something, let me know. Use the form below or contact me through my website: studiohcanada.ca
