Spring!

After weeks and weeks of ice and snow, it’s so good to feel the warmth of the sun. I’ve been holed up in my little studio working on a new subset of my Mare Incognitum project. My latest paintings are all small pieces in acrylic, 10″ x 10″. I’m exploring a colour palette and mark-making […]

Curate The Day

Most winter mornings, my day starts in the dark. I love to sit by the window, coffee in hand, reading, and watching the sun rise. I pretty much always have a novel on the go, but just as often, I’ll spend some time catching up on my favourite artists and writers by reading their blogs […]

Inspiration: A Walk In The Woods

I’ve always loved walking in the woods, especially on a crisp wintery day. Recently, I came upon the Japanese concept of Shinrinyoku, or “forest bathing”, which means to go deep into the woods where everything is silent and peaceful. Just being in the forest, seeking relaxation. It’s supposed to have calming, rejuvenating and restorative benefits. […]

Dramatic, Enigmatic & Iconic: Pantone’s Colour Of The Year For 2018

Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2018 is Ultra Violet, PANTONE 18-3838, a cool purple shade that veers towards the blue end of the violet spectrum. “People are exploring and experimenting and looking for something that’s original.” – Laurie Pressman, VP Pantone Color Institute Oddly, as I look at the printed colour chip of 18-3838, the […]

New Year, New Work

My website has just been updated with several pieces from my new series, MARE INCOGNITUM. I’ve been exploring my experience of painting in the context of a journey, an adventure and as a way to delve into the unknown. Last spring, I set out to build on the visual language from my previous body of work, […]

Canada's Heart Is Broken

We are well into autumn here and I find myself reflecting on how the past four months have been a grand period of exploring for me. I’ve been working as a patroller on Le P’tit Train du Nord Linear Park, and it has been an incredible experience: over the summer and into fall, I rode […]

Follow Me On Instagram

I’m happy to announce that my art has a new home on Instagram! After a year of waffling over whether or not to split it off from my personal account, I finally made the (tiny) leap. I like to keep things simple, so I held off because it felt counter-intuitive to me to start a […]

August Roundup

I can’t believe we’re already heading into the last two weeks of August. It feels like the summer has gotten away from me, as I’ve been super busy with all kind of art things as well as with work. I have a job for the summer that’s taking up a lot of my time, but […]
