His work has been exhibited in numerous Canadian institutions, and he has completed residencies at SPACE Studios in London, UK (Canada Council for the Arts), the Banff Centre (Banff, Canada), La Maison Laurentine (Aubepierre-sur-Aube, France), Rad’Art (San Romano, Italy), Imagination Station (Detroit, USA), 3e impérial (Granby, Canada) and AdMare (Magdelen Islands, Canada).
