Hand Drawn Ornaments

I have rediscovered shrinky dinks and love them just as much as I did as a kid! They are such a great canvas for pencil crayon! I mostly make ornaments but Pong was requested as a magnet! I also love to draw houses and architecture for key rings.

Folk Fest Illustration

I was contracted to create an illustration to promote Calgary Folk Music Festival 2021’s Jumbo-Screen COVID-friendly ticket area. This is a festival I have attended over the years and it a special time of year in Calgary – it meant a lot to try to capture the magic that happens when you’re just folkin’ around.

YYC Beltline Bike Rack

I was selected from a Call to Artists to transform the YYC Beltline bike racks. I spent 12 days painting the mural – and in keeping with typical Calgary May weather I argued with the rain, basked in the sunlight and finished the piece 6 hours before the snow. Better Bike Racks and The Blox YYC put out a request for submission of a design depicting a social issue of 2020. But at the time I needed to focus on moving forward – on inclusivity and interconnectivity. No beginning or end, but wanting to learn and grow. I am so honoured to have had a platform to express myself in a community I love, and on such a unique canvas. This project will always be special to me as my first public art piece, I hope that it causes others as much joy as it gave me. It was a dream come true and an area I wish to continue pursuing. Two Word Productions created the amazing video below documenting the project.

Editorial Design

These are a few of the spreads I designed from my time at Source Media Group. We produced 6 magazines in the Central Alberta area – 2 monthly and 4 quarterly. I updated several sites each month with the new articles and issues, and processed ads for our clients. calgaryhomeliving.com

Location Illustrations

After creating collateral for a One Day Book Drive where I illustrated 4 Calgary Public Library Locations, the client requested I draw each location so they could all 26 in a uniform way if need be. I loved the challenge of this project as each location is strikingly different in Calgary, and each illustration needed to be displayed separately and together. The Library now has the ‘Love Your Library’ campaign where people can buy a tote to support their local branch. 📸: @RVLPH.G

Library Freelance

This summer, along with the Bike Store, I designed some print collateral for the Calgary Public Library: One Day Book Drive – a collaborative effort with Dana Lissack. This project consisted of a poster, postcard and social media component. The poster shows the life of a book before it goes though a contraption (Better World Books). They resell the books and give a portion of the profits back to the library so they can buy the books they need. Biblio – an internal poster to showcase their employees love of books. I did the illustrations for the posters and the provided a basic layout. Gloria Essex over at the library finished up the posters.

Library Store on Wheels

The Calgary Public Library Foundation came to me with a super exciting project this summer – Library Store on Wheels! I got to design the logo and the vinyl wrap for a trailer they had made by another local artist. I had it produced on whiteboard vinyl so they can write messages, prices or sales and customize the store each time they open. Last year I created several products for the Calgary Public Library Store, and they needed some new inventory this summer for their new mobile store: I did a small series of Untold Fairy Tales and another tote bag.
