Only thing you need when you leave the house
Ideally, if keys did not exist, I'd leave with just my bike! There is so much to find in the city, and always places to explore.
Beverage of choice
I think I'd be discounting myself if I didn't admit I had a *minor* coffee habit. I also enjoy a tasty summer sangria-and any sour. I have done a lot fo bartending in the service industry-I'm always excited to try a new cocktail, or make something special.
When did you start making art, and why?
I started what I call my body of work in high school, I was probably 16 or 17 when the weight of what I could put into something hit me. I'm delightfully haunted by that feeling of creation, and making in general. It keeps me up at night and it helps me sleep. If you ask me, I like the creative category of a poet in a metaphorical sense. I've built poetry into the way I look at life, and how I overcome obstacles and difficulties.
What do you listen to when you work?
Lately, I've been trying to listen to as much music by local artists as possible. I love Ruby Waters and Passport Radio dearly. The music scene in Toronto is full of many talented individuals. Short Answer-anything I can sing along too-I have a soft spot for Etta James, and Frank Sinatra.
Why is it important for people to have art in their home or life?
Art becomes a mood booster, a place for a pensive thought, and a place to look, a reminder of an emotion, and something to consider. Art will always create these spaces in our heads, and spaces in our homes that allow us new energy. Artists pour a little bit of themselves into what they make, and when you get that in your home, you can collect those pieces and put your life into them.
