I am a widower and a military veteran. I completed the two-year diploma program at the School of Photographic Arts Ottawa (SPAO) to become a photographer. I am refining my craft as a visual artist and am currently an artist-in-residence to further my skills. Photography has provided me the foundation on which to build the rest of my life.
The project Fabri has made me realize that art is a refuge. In my interaction with artisans, I see their strength and commitment to a journey in solitude. I vicariously enjoy glimpses into their lives, which fuels my perseverance to continue on my own journey. As I go forward to discover more artisans, I will celebrate people and celebrate life! I gratefully acknowledges the support of The Ontario Arts Council for this photographic exhibition.
