The November Hat Trick

This November, I'll be exhibiting my work in three major shows. 

First, I'll be participating in the 20th Annual Festival of Smalls at Art Interiors, located at 446 Spadina Road #203 in Forest Hill Village, Toronto. The show begins Saturday November 9th. Visit www.artinteriors.ca for details. For the duration of this show, "smalls" will be sold for $250 and under. I'll be showing 12" x 12" paintings of Ferrero Roche chocolates and lattes, and 10" x 10" framed drawings of Hershey's Kisses. Any of these would make the perfect holiday gift. Get yours before it gets eaten up! 

From November 28th - December 8th, I'll be at the One of a Kind Christmas Show, selling new and familiar pieces from the "Tasting Room" series. This is another perfect opportunity to buy unique and timeless gifts for your loved ones. On weekdays and Saturdays, the show runs from 10am - 9pm. On Sundays, the show runs from 10am - 6pm. Don't miss the "Late Night Shopping" on Thursday, December 5, which will run until 11pm! For more information, visit: http://www.oneofakindshow.com/toronto/index.php

A little bit of string, and a whole lot of love.

I just finished the most amazing commission for an even more amazing family. They wanted a piece of art that reflected the energy in their home, and I couldn't think of a more perfect idea than this 5-foot long wood panel that spells out "love u" in nails and coloured string. 

I had a blast working on this piece, which I am slightly obsessed with. There have already been a few requests for smaller scale pieces in this style, and I invite anyone to commission their own nail & string design. I am still working on my photorealist paintings, but projects like this allow me to exercise my creativity. I've become better acquainted with my hammer & nails, and hopefully this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Nuit Blanche Exhibition!

On Saturday, October 5th, I'll be showing two paintings in a Nuit Blanche exhibition at The Elaine Fleck Gallery on Queen West. The iced coffee, shown below, is my latest addition to the "Tasting Room" series. It certainly seems that my recent work is coloured by my love of breakfast.  

Be there or be square.
