sweater season

Even though I'm sick due to the weather change, my heart still flutters as we approach my favourite time of year...
(though I hope the heart fluttering isn't anything serious; back to the doctor I go)

new illustration


one of many new illustrations to join the family at

new projects

textile design for destineau swimwear

For the past year or so, I've had the great pleasure of working with a fantastic team on developing and creating a swimwear line that celebrates vacation destinations around the globe. I was given complete creative freedom (wha?!) to evoke the mood of every suit's unique locale (my favorite is South Beach, Miami!), thus creating a collection of work that touches all corners of the world, but is still grounded in it's common aesthetic....essentially, my hand.

get to my spiffed up, ramped up, newly updated website to see my work, the collection and more photos from the destineau shoot.

Here is the piece I did for Uppercase Gallery's Work/Life Directory.

Sign of Spring

Janine Vangool of Uppercase put together an amazing book of is her vision:

"Being a professional illustrator or photographer is a full-time job that goes beyond the mainstream nine-to-five: tough deadlines mean working through the night and photo shoots might whisk you away to unexpected places. Flashes of inspiration can happen anytime, so your sketchbook is an indispensable appendage. You might spend innumerable hours secluded in your studio, or perhaps you’re a regular at the local coffee shop. Chances are, your work and your life are one and the same and you wouldn’t have it any other way."

Work/Life is a book celebrating Canadian illustration and photography. Unlike magazine awards annuals or traditional illustration directories that are little more than picture books, our publication delves into what fuels a creative life. Participants were interviewed about their creative focus and artistic technique as well as their inspirations and aspirations. Sketchbook pages, studio shots, inspirational objects and personal photography allow us to peek into their work and their lives."

Happy to be part of another great Uppercase project!
