I am most definitely a night owl J
What are you currently working on?
Currently I am working on a collection of landscape paintings that have personal significance or nostalgia, the plan is to eventually collect enough of these ‘memory place’ paintings to exhibit together
I am also currently working with the writer Kelly Smith of Comic Smithing) on a series of stories which we hope to compile into a comic book anthology. (The story we are currently working on ‘The Cats Came Back’ will be included in the upcoming horror anthology ‘Dark Lady.’
Also this Saturday June 13, I am competing in the New Brunswick Regional Finals for Art Battle Canada. I have only started doing Art Battles this winter and they are an exhilarating way to spend an evening!
In the next five years you would you like to accomplish. Dream big!
In the next five years I want to have completed my master’s degree. I want to have completed a solo exhibition of the work created during my master’s program and I would like to completely illustrate a graphic novel.
I also plan on marrying the love of my life J (Helen says Awwww)
Dream vacation? Where would you like to go and why.
I would travel north. I find northern landscapes fascinating, fjords and glaciers are beautiful. I want to see the Canadian north as well as Scandinavia.
What music do you listen to when you are working?
I give my sister most of the credit for supplying me with music, she faithfully stocks my ipod. I usually like something upbeat favorites include, Gogol Bordello and De Glade Sømænd (The Happy Sailors). Over the top metal ballads are also welcome.
Recently I have been listening to a lot of podcasts while painting, Stuff You Should Know and Stuff You Missed in History Class provide excellent studio company.
My favourite colour to wear is Red, my favourite colour to paint is Prussian Blue.
