These are some of the magazines and newspapers that have featured my work over the last 3 years. I thought I’d document myself with my accomplishments.

The very first printed publication to feature an article about my work was a local, French language newspaper ‘L’express du Pacificue’, three weeks after I had graduated from Emily Carr Institute (now University) of Art and Design. I remember the day I was asked for an interview:

It was my last studio hour before the graduation show at Emily Carr and I was building a plywood stand to support my grad project ‘Necrophilia’ which included a composition of two ball-jointed, porcelain dolls- Snow White and Prince as well as a glass coffin. After spending most of the day in the wood working shop I went out to buy some more plywood sheets at a nearby carpentry store. The return trip turned out to be a real struggle because the plywood proved to be way too heavy for me to carry. Luckily, five minutes into my trip, a young man caught up to me and offered his help, to which I happily accepted. As we walked back to my school, the man asked me about what I was going to do with all that plywood and I told him about my graduating project ‘Necrophilia’. He listened to me talk about my work with great interest, which was strange to me, because I at that point I was not used to talking about it outside of class critiques or with any body other than my professors or classmates.

As we parted ways, the man gave me his business card and asked me call him. He said he was a journalist, working for a French newspaper and that after hearing about it, he wants to write an article about my work. Next week he assigned a writer to work on the story and two weeks later my interview appeared in the art and culture section of L’Express du Pacificue.

And that’s how an accidental encounter with a stranger turned into a significant event of my emerging career as an artist. The timing couldn’t have been any more perfect. It almost felt like a sign.

And that's the stand which got me that interview.

And that's my grad show and the plywood stand which got me that interview.

More publications are on the way this summer and fall.
