IMMERSED IN ILLUSTRATION
Tuesdays, Jan 25-March 22

Welcome to an insightful look into the world of illustration! This online class offers a keen overview into many aspects of illustration: historical examples from around the world, contemporary types of illustration, and demos in the classic (and sometimes unconventional!) tools in an illustrator's toolkit. Open to all levels of skill, this class is geared more towards drawing beginners and illustrators who are just starting out.

HRM ARTILLERY MURAL
May 15-June 15

Thanks to the Halifax Regional Municipality, not-for-profit kindness society Altruistic Current is running another collaborative mural, directed by yours truly!
From May to June, I'll be on-site prepping and painting the mural background, and coordinating with 7 professional artists as they add their unique style to the work!
Check out more of our Muraleers program!

PRINT & PLANT FUNDRAISER
Year-round

Selected from my Music Bird painting series, these 5''x 7'' inkjet prints are on Forest Sustainability Certified (FSC) textured  linen paper, and one-third of each print sold goes to  Tree Canada, which has many  reforestation programs across the country. The purchase of one print equals one tree being planted.
To date, 116 trees have been planted from this initative.
