Garden Letters

Merging my gardening, with drawing, and communication with friends. Drawing may be one of the earliest forms of communication. We can draw a parallel between seed dispersal and language. Between roots and language. Between the movement of people and the variety of plant species we find. Recently, I’ve become very dedicated to the propagation of […]

Sketching Tour

ARTivating the Ravine was an event sponsored by a TD bank “park people” grant. A couple of neighbours and I submitted an application that would bring neighbours into the nearby ravine to learn something new and enjoy the fresh air. We couldn’t have asked for better weather.  Sketchbooks and materials were provided thanks to the […]

WexPop Mural

PlazaPOPS. “is a high impact, low cost, and replicable demonstration of the potential of ‘pop up’ community gathering places within the privately-owned public spaces (POPS) of Toronto’s emblematic inner-suburban strip mall plazas.” They hope to act like Italian Piazzas.

Fly by night – Gladstone, Nuit Blanche, Toronto

For the all night long Nuit Blanche event at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto Ontario, we created a place for people to come, relax, sit down, and meet some new friends. We wanted to evoke childhood forts and camping, letting people have a bit of agency as to how the space was used. And, we […]

Food currency

This series of charcoal drawings share utter abandon for a sense of scale. Subjects range from global currency, contemporary food systems, and industrial agriculture, to simply the patterns found at the cellular level, or the bark of a tree. This recent body of work is a reaction to human engagement with, and responsibility for economics, land use, […]

Human – My afternoon with a fox & skunks

Among other exciting things it is a natural habitat, or zoo, of indigenous rescued wildlife, historical buildings, and an environmental science center.

Nautical Charts

In the mid to late 1980s I saw the shoreline that I grew up on change drastically with the invasive species we call zebra mussels. These razor sharp but very small critters established themselves on every poissible surface. We had to suddenly wear foot protection all the time on the beach and in the water. […]

Charcoal as my material of choice

I am interested in the transformation of materials from their organic state to a mass produced and then consumed product. Charcoal is a common artists’ tool manufactured into various forms, but in its simplest form it is the residue of impure carbon easily obtained by burning wood or other organic matter, thus removing water and other […]

Bang On It

Visitors to the gallery were encouraged to take up stick and join in a continual rhythmic experience by banging on a variety of ramshackle, handmade and found percussive instruments. This was a translation of an experience the art team had after a long afternoon together. Even we were surprised by the beauty of the sounds […]
