I am on a journey that began six years ago when my art studio was tagged with graffiti. This event has led me down a whole new avenue of expression and piqued my curiosity about public spaces and who is allowed to express themselves within them. It is surprising how society will accept ugly: ugly infrastructure such as underpasses, but not graffiti which is made by hand. Graffiti is covered up with uglier grey patches which do not match the colour of the concrete, fool no one and communicate aggressiveness and control.
I have been a working artist for 33 years, beginning in Toronto and Ottawa and now Charlottetown.
