Through various mediums, he explores land, language, and ancestral histories while challenging colonial perceptions. He uses uncommon combinations of shape, colours, and composition to create new narratives or ways to investigate an old story. He holds a MFA from the University of British Columbia and participated in over 90 group and solo exhibitions, nationally and internationally. He has received several awards and honours, most notably the 2020 Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia Masterworks Arts Award and the Sobey Art Award (2015 and 2016).
