I am a multimedia artist living in Squamish, BC. Sharing space in “Homebase Studios” art co-op is amazing and so inspirational.
I have been exploring many styles of art for most of my life. For years I worked with food, now I have found myself back in visual arts, exploring multimedia and teaching.
Currently I‘ve been focusing on “gun powder painting”, a unique form of art using fuse line and black gun powder exploded on plaster and wooden canvas. The blast leaves an organic image that is intricate and impressive.
Sharing the magic of combustion has been amazing, the live performance is such an elemental experience for both me and the audience.
In my studio I have an amazing collection of supplies that spans many mediums. This feeds and gives life to the never ending tide of ideas I have for wild pieces and odd media combinations. Watching people explore and “hunt” through the variety of supplies I have amalgamated is of my favorite things about teaching in the studio. The students get so much out of the workshops just from the space and the supplies. Along side the Gunpowder paintings, I have been slowly building a extravagant hand-made collection of wearable art and custom costumes to rent or inspire. As well as a unique line of feather accessories called “Peacock Designs”.
There are many beautiful things about an art co-op, one of the most enjoyable for the community is the large shared space, I have been able to host a variety of affordable courses, from mask-making and painting to vision board-collage and jewellery exploration!
The Sea to Sky corridor is a truly amazing place to live, the inspiration and lifestyle is a gift.
