Seven prints from my recent series of plexiglass prints – The Everyday Liminal – are currently showing at the U of A Museums Galleries at Enterprise Square in Edmonton as part of the group show A Little Bit of Infinity. The exhibition features print works from around the world to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Print Study Centre. The exhibition is up until January 28th with an opening on September 30th.
I recently completed two new silkscreen prints on paper.

My work is again appearing in this large, print biennial in Portugal. Check out the Douro Biennial Site for information about this exhibition curated by Nuno Canelas.
I recently took a 3-day workshop at Barbarian Press in Mission, BC, where I learned the basics of letterpress printing from some of the masters in the game. I printed a broadsheet with the lyrics from “Nothing Matters When We’re Dancing” by the Magnetic Fields. It was an excellent opportunity to peruse a range of beautiful printed books, sort through tons of old type, and gain valuable tips on letterpress printmaking. Pictures below!

My work is part of the InkMasters Print Biennale 2016 which opened a few days ago in Cairns, Australia. Its the first time my work has been exhibited in that country. The exhibition is up until August 21st.
