My work is included in the exhibition “Designing with Printed Art” curated by interior designer Kate Zeidler January 12, 2018 – February 10, 2018 at Open Studio, 401 Richmond St. W Toronto.
Other artists in the exhibition are Shogo Okada and Tammy Ratcliff.
I participated in 2/Edition with Open Studio at the Toronto Art Fair October 27-30 with my new prints Woodland Collection.
Critical Mass: A Centre for Contemporary Art, Port Hope held a very successful community Mini/Mega Printmaking Event September 23 and 24. Many thanks to an amazing volunteer board who worked with an Ontario 150 grant and many local sponsors and volunteers to produce the event. I ran trials with Scott Eunson Woodworking in Toronto to use cnc cutting for four of the woodcuts. It worked beautifully! I also worked out the logistics for the steamroller printing and oversaw the production of eight mega prints during the weekend. It was exhausting but fun! My image relates to my ongoing Tangled Garden project and references 19th century tapestry and wallpaper design imagining an ideal Port Hope garden forever flowering and fruiting.
Here are some photos of the Mini/Mega Printmaking Event:

The Gibson Girls spent two glorious weeks on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland hiking, taking photos, watching whales everyday, eating delicious fish and chips, talking art and life and as always enjoying each other’s company. Many thanks to Gibson Girl Jane Steenberg for sharing her Pouch Cove home with us. We were smitten. Here are some photos from our trip
