Up! Book Trailer

I have a new book coming out this April!

Up! How Families Around the World Carry Their Little Ones is written by Susan Hughes and published by Owlkids. A big thank you to my editor, Debbie Rogosin and Designer, Barb Kelly for making this book into something I'm very proud of. Thanks also to Jemicah Marasigan for transforming my process shots into this lovely little book trailer. Enjoy! 

Who's Behind that Store Window?

I'd like to thank Sarah Daniel for including me in this fun article for Porter Airline's Billy App about the window displays around Toronto and the people behind them. I'm quite humbled to be mentioned alongside the likes of Kalpna Patel of the Type Books display, Tim Oakley of Sonic Boom Records and Michelle Smith of Dufflet/William Ashley/Squint.

Sometimes it's little mentions like these that keep you motivated to keep doing what you're doing. I get so caught up in the making and installing, that I forget that people are looking and appreciating.

Welcome to Toronto

Welcome to Toronto is a colouring book with heart. Designed for newly arriving Syrian children, the book intends to acquaint them with different aspects of our wonderful city, while also doing something fun and relaxing: colouring! 

30 Toronto artists contributed to this initiative and I'm honoured to be one of them.

I'm very excited to be teaching another paper collage workshop at Whitby's Station Gallery this spring.

Course Description:

Paper Petals is a fresh take on the classic art of botanical illustration. You’ll learn how to recreate your favourite flowers and plants through the fun and colourful art of paper collage. This class will explore different techniques in designing, replicating, cutting and personalizing papers (by using paint and stamps for added texture.) See how you can add your own personal touch to this versatile medium!

Workshop Date: June 5th, 2016 (10-4pm)
