Describe your ideal studio space in three words.

Large, welcoming, windows


What is your favourite gallery or artist run centre to visit in the city?

That’s hard to choose. I’m pretty excited about Pablo de Ocampo’s programming at the Western Front. I’m really looking forward to seeing Olivia Whetung’s work in conversation with Lis Rhodes’s. I also love visiting project spaces in artist studios. These shows are usually put on by the artist and/or their friends with no budget, just the labour that the individual or community can muster, which often comes from an invested, sincere place.


If you could change one thing about living and working as an artist in Vancouver, what would it be?
