ARTIST STATEMENT

There's a lot of stuff to look at in New York. Here's some of it. 

I miss Canada (a lot) but I'm trying to soak in all the New York I can. NY can be a pain in the ass but the people are truly fascinating and sometimes wonderful. There are times I want to run away to a cabin in the middle of the woods... but then I hear a Mexican woman singing the most beautiful song ever on the F Train or I see Hasidic kids hugging a tree in Prospect Park and I'm back in.
