About Us:

Studio 34 is a cooperative studio space and education center run by artists for artists. Creating a place to conceive new ideas, practices and processes, experiment, and develop as artists.​

My enthusiasm and passion to create parallels my eagerness to teach and share with others. I would like to share and contribute to the growing art scene of Nanaimo and its creators, following my ‘credo’:

“I can only keep what I have by giving it away”.​
