I'm excited to say I've been featured in the Hamilton Spectator about my current show at the Focus Gallery entitled "COOTES". Thanks to Regina Haggo for the insightful article.
I'm excited to say that the show was a complete success and was grateful to all the people who came out to see my work. This show is roughly a year and a half in the making and I feel it's some of my best work. It depicts "Cootes Paradise", a particularly interesting part of hamilton nature and it's relationship with the urban city around it. It runs until Nov 12/2016. If your up on James Street, dont forget to stop by at the gallery. Just tell em James sent you!
