Last summer at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition I saw this wonderful pattern on a black and white dress.  The woman wearing the dress told me it was from Brazil and let me take a photo of the pattern so that I could make this print.  Available here.

Blowing Skirt

I was watching a video of the Valentino Fall/Winter 2015 collection which was full of black and white squares and triangles and stripes.  Just perfect inspiration for this print!  Available here:

Block 232 - Full Frontal

I recently completed this large linocut print of the facade of an apartment block in Singapore.  The repetition of the windows is almost dizzying, but if you look closely the facade is not symmetrical.  How strange for a building of a slightly older vintage.  Available here.

I will also be showing this print at the Toronto Artist Project in February 2015.

The print is based on a photograph by Horst Kiechle.  He is a Flickr contact and over the past year or two I have made a number of prints based on his photography of Singapore architecture.

Art Walk North


I am participating in Art Walk North in North York (Mel Lastman Square)this weekend. 

One of the few or only outdoor art shows in Toronto NORTH of Bloor.  In fact most of the outdoor shows go no further north than Queen Street, which might as well be in the middle of Lake Ontario as far as most of the city is concerned!

Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition

Back in the show!  This is a juried show - so sometimes you are in and sometimes you are not!  This year there are only 8 printmakers out of a show of 348 artists.  I don't know if there are not many of us applying or if our work isn't to a high enough standard.  Hmm.

Baobab Tree


Linoblock print of a Baobab tree from Madagascar.  Strangely enough I once saw these trees in a tree nursery on Hainan Island in China. Available here.
