January 2023

  • Please join me this month at Craft Ontario for the opening of my solo exhibition Generation. This displays a major project I worked on throughout 2022 – weaving and reupholstering chairs built by my paternal grandfather at his workplace, Brunswick Manufacturing.

    Generation runs from January 14-February 25, 2023 at Craft Ontario in Toronto. The opening reception is from Sunday, January 22 from 2-5pm, and I will be in attendance!
