With a focus on painting Ian builds specialized emblems, figurines, and displays, that are combined for exhibition purposes. Currently Ian is a media arts scholar at CFAT (Centre for Art Tapes), where he looks to the format of medieval display and how it could be translated to newer technologies and contemporary exhibition. His projects have received the support of Arts Nova Scotia, and he works seasonally as a visual arts instructor at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts.
