I did my first ever illustration job this week for today's (Thursday) Globe and Mail. It is a Facts and Arguments essay about a woman living with Parkinson's disease. Thanks to Cinders McLeod for the job and the confidence. Here is a link to the story http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/facts-and-arguments/my-life-with-parkinsons/article1480100/

Something About Gros Morne
I finished this one last week for the Ingram show. She is the same model as in my A Question Begins piece. However, this one is more about me than anything. The place in her arms is Western Brook Pond, Gros Morne, Newfoundland. I went there are few times as a kid and again during my honeymoon. It makes me feel 13, nostalgic, a little sad, but alive and so me. The weight and age of those fjords can hold you, they surround you and make you feel woven into a world so much deeper and larger than your own. I find that comforting. I had the best time sitting on my couch in my studio, listening to music, making this piece. Now I have a solo show to consider.....
Rachel Berman and I
A few on the walls
Thanks to everyone who came out on Thursday evening. It was a full and merry house. Such an honour and treat to exhibit with and get to know Rachel Berman and Scott Owles. The show hangs until the 20th, so do check it out if you didn't make it to the opening. It is a super solid show.
