Print(ed) Matter is currently on view at Gallery 2 in Grand Forks, BC. This is a collaborative book project between Calgary printmakers and writers that was previously exhibited at Loft 112 in Calgary. An image of my book displayed in Calgary is below.
I will be participating in the Canadian Digital selection for the Novosibirsk Triennial (Russia), curated by Derek Besant. I’ve created two new digital prints for this project which will be exhibited in September. I’m curating the Canadian print (traditional) selection for the biennial as well. Stay tuned for info about the artists and project!

My first print of 2018 is a silkscreen produced for the Going to Ground portfolio at SGCI 2018. Looking forward to the upcoming conference!

I had an image and a brief writeup in the Winter 2018 issue of Canadian Art. Their issue was on wellness so I had a few brief mentions of my research mentioned in the school guide (shout out to ACAD!) and an image published as well.
The amazing SNAP print studio in Edmonton, Alberta, created a new Print Patron fundraising level this past year and commissioned me to create a print for the donors. The print sold out before I even finished printing it back in November so its no longer available but you can check it out below and stay tuned for next year’s fundraising print.

Super happy to be part of the Flatgrafika portfolio, organized by the excellent Robert Truszkowski. The folio was exhibited at the Hague Gallery in Regina on September 16th.

Excited to have my work exhibited for Fresh Ink at Wonderfair during Lawrence Print Week (October 16th – 21st). The show was juried by Jeffrey Dell, an amazing silkscreen artist whose work I greatly admire. The show is up until November 5th and features an excellent lineup of contemporary printmakers. Check it out if you happen to be in Lawrence, Kansas.

September through October, I am exhibiting some new works alongside Jill Ho You and Marnie Blair at the Red Deer Museum Galleries. Our exhibition The Other Passport reflects on illness and its impacts. The title is based on a Susan Sontag quote from Illness as Metaphor:
Illness is the night side of life, a more onerous citizenship. Everyone who is born holds dual citizenship, in the kingdom of the well and in the kingdom of the sick. Although we all prefer to use the good passport, sooner or later each of us is obliged, at least for a spell, to identify ourselves as citizens of that other place.
I’ll also be delivering an artist talk to students at Red Deer College on September 25th.
I have five prints on display at the Leighton Centre as part of Impressions, an exhibition of local Calgary (and region) printmakers. The show is up until the end of September (although its been up for a few months already).
