Objects Have Stories



Sharing wall space with some fantastic folks as we gather for "Objects Have Stories". The work of 22 illustrators will be shown at MADE in Toronto for the month of December, with an opening on Friday, November 28th from 7-10pm.
All items are one of a kind. 
"Illustrators tell stories as no one else can, and Julia Breckenreid has assembled twenty-two top-tier Canadian illustrators to do just that. This award winning roster has created one or more original objects for you to peruse and consider."

painting in circles...

Sometimes, it's nice to just turn off the computer for a few days, get the brushes out, and lose myself in a painting. Uninterrupted time is precious, and the absolute pleasure that comes with it reminds me to make room for this more often. 

I've been watching some really moving dance performances of Stravinsky's 'Rite of Spring' recently, and I found it creeping into this piece as I considered cycles, rebirth, ritual...

My piece can be viewed at the Nook Holiday Show december 6-7, as 50 illustrators gather under one roof to share their recent work.

a summer of paper cutting...

This summer, I've been working away, scalpel in hand, recreating some of my favourite fairy tales in paper. The resulting pieces will be on display at this year's Uxbridge Studio Tour, on September 17 & 18th, 2011. I'm thrilled to once again be guest artist of sculptor Fly Freeman. For directions and details, please visit the tour website, and while you're there, check out the short films of our work in progress.
