MOST RECENT

In 2016 activists from the #DTES embarked on an artistic journey exploring our lived experience of illicit drug culture, human impacts of drug policy & the realities of the #opioidcrisis. The result? A shadow play of their courage, tragedy & hope. 🎟➡️ bit.ly/2MKypk9

SOLD! After brisk bidding, my painting was auctioned for $4,000 at last night's @alovingspoonful Gala! That is 170% over asking & a chunk of change towards free meals for people living with HIV/AIDS in Metro Vancouver.

"A Glorious Moment" by my super talented friend @sydney_southam_art. It "explores the ability of materials to hold memory and meaning, and to forge new connections between labour and performance" through the creation of beautiful raku fired ceramic pleaser shoes and an amazing quilt made from donated costumes worn by dancers who work or have worked as stippers. A piece she produced for the @whitbrennan curated Feathers, Ether, Sand, Speech show that also features brilliant works by @lauren__mars and @liz.milton on now until August 4. I highly recommend you go see it for yourself
