I am a Montreal born artist currently based in Tokyo.

I began my way into the arts over 10 years ago, drawing, painting and taking photos. What can I say? Since then, I’ve been developing a sort of work disorder where I can’t stop drawing, taking photos and painting. It’s gotten me into trouble and it’s kept me out of trouble.

I’ve never been happy being good at just one thing though they say you should just pick ONE thing and be good at it. I’m kind of hard headed so I figured I wouldn’t listen to any of that nonsense and strive to be a multi-disciplinarian artist. I like taking things from A to Z. If I could afford it, I’d delegate some of the work. For now, I’ll see how much weight I can carry on my own. So far, it’s working out rather well.

And I love inventing new words.

Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re looking for such a person to hire.
