If you are in Toronto this weekend, come for an art filled stroll through the Annex for the annual Patio Art Show. I will be exhibiting my new series of work among many many talent artists in the streets of my favourite Toronto neighbourhood.
The show will be along the store fronts along Bloor Street from Bathurst to Spadina. We’ll be there from 10am-5pm Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 of July.
I was interviewed by the lovely Natalie Jubb for the Canadian art blog, Fragmentalist. I’m honored to be one of this wonderful site’s Canadian Feature Artists.
Read my interview here, and make sure to check out all of the artists and info on this site.
I was recently asked to create some illustrations for the fabulous Toronto production, Visitations at the Drake Hotel created by The Mission Project. The performance is a multi-layered interactive performance with mysteries that expand to the online space. I created these sample pages from the gruesome picture book, ‘The Enchantment of Wiggles’. It was an honour to create part of this creepy world.

Here’s a recent piece I recently sold at By the Pound . The phrase ‘Though I am hated by all birds, I nevertheless rather enjoy that’ comes from a 16th Century Hungarian shield that is on display at the Met in New York. I thought the phrase was so strange and wonderful, it inspired this piece. I wonder what the birds had against that Hungarian. This piece is made using ink transfer, and the wood was laser cut to the shape of my illustrations.
Happy new year! This little boy and his monster roommate have been up to some more adventures over the holidays. My latest creation – set of four prints.
