I try my hardest to provide tasty tidbits of all things illustration, art and design; when it comes to feeding myself, however, I often fall short. That's why I leave that to my friend Angus of Angus Bennett Catering-just about the greatest chef I know. Angus has been feeding my always-hungry belly ever since he moved into town, and he's now ready to share some tasty (and beautiful) morsels with all of you.

Who says art can't be eaten?
Visit his new blog LOVE FOOD to be inspired by talent of a different flavour.

Upcoming Show

The Superlative Order consists of Adam Hilborn, Elizabeth Dyer and myself.
A Portrait show opening April 8th at Barbershop Gallery; check back soon for full details as well as a sneak peek of some of the new work being shown....bound to be a good one.

Pass the Buck. I mean, Luck.

Some sad looking, but very meaningful, pieces of luck passed down three generations to me.
They've been through a lot. And now, I pass them on to you.
Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Two Birds

A "family portrait" I recently finished for my dear friend Caroline
(whose new baby, Emma, is also my new god-daughter!)

The Walrus

A piece about the key players of history being consigned to oblivion in our over-documented, over-saturated age; in this case Ephrem Brisebois, the first French Canadian officer in the North West Mounted Police.

Green Clean

Don't know about you, but I'm hopping on the bandwagon and goin' green for the ol' Spring Clean this year.
