Hi – I’m an artist and online publishing professional living in Hamilton, Ontario. I’ve had an interesting last 20 years in the art and media scenes of Montreal, Ottawa and Toronto. This blog is now where all the threads of my professional practice are on display in one place.
This space used to be the marketing blog for my online magazine project, Art Listings Professional. This blog became an audience development exercise, in a way, for myself as an artist. I became more comfortable as an individual not hidden behind a brand, a mask, a character.
I look forward to continuing the notes, musings, interviews and reviews and am excited by sharing my new work and new directions. After these years of research of other artists and contemporary art history in the form of artlistpro.com and artprwire.com, I am glad to have found a kindred community both online and everywhere I walk.
