From the artist:
I like maps. As a kid I drew them (usually leading to treasure I would find in places unknown). Now I use them constantly. I’m the navigator in both familiar and unfamiliar cities studying plans daily and drawing where I’ve been.

This tracking reflects where I am, where I want to be, and the decisions I make about how to get there. It’s modest. whereabouts contains scrawled notes tracking how I get to places throughout Toronto. There are words as cues listing places, and scribbles reflecting failed beginnings. My sense of what is treasure has changed; the way I move through the city is enough.

About the artist:
