Biography


  At 14 years old my mother dropped me off at an old cabin that was filled with stretched canvases, paint splattered walls and very little furniture. There, an elderly man would teach me the difference between looking and seeing, and so began my mentorship with Roger Hebert, an accomplished French Canadian artist and lover of all things beautiful.
