Grad Show

Here are a few shots from my installation at the OCAD Graduation Exhibition! I ended up framing all of my pieces and then pouring resin into the frames, which I felt gave the final pieces an added touch. I created a cottage like installation around them to accompany the natural themes in my work. I was really happy with how everything turned out and had a great weekend showing with some of the most talented artist I know!

the final days

I'm finally getting around to updating this darn thing! I've been so busy for the past couple of months I've completely neglected my blog, but now summer is here and things are leveling out I can get back to updating regularly!!!

Here are the final two pieces from my thesis. I was really happy with how these guys turned out and can't wait to make personal work using this technique! The first piece is called Flirting with fall and deals with the sensual magic of the season and the second piece is called Naturebation which I assume is pretty self explanatory ;)

I've got a bunch of new stuff to put up, so make sure to check back often and I'm also currently working on another blog that will be much more fashion oriented so get excited!!!

the dirty thoughts of gutter minds

*click to enlarge

Here are my finally two pieces for my thesis project! I worked really hard on these guys and got bronchitis in the process but it I suppose it was all worth it because I'm very pleased with how they turned out. The first piece is about a group experience between two girls and an eager flower. I think this is one of my strongest thesis pieces and I had quite a lot of fun drawing their beach girl outfits. On the other hand, there was some debate in class about whether the second piece was depicting a violent sexual act or not. While my intention was to portray a resourceful lumberjack, some of my peers believed it suggested the raping of nature. You'll be able to see my work, along side tons of extremely talented students at the OCAD grad show this may! If you are in Toronto, be sure to stop by and spend some time checking out the eye candy!

the OCAD Graduation exhibition is from May 5th-8th, check out the schedule and info HERE

Bad Girls Club

Here's a little teaser for a new zine I'm working on! It's going to be an ode to little girls and their mischievous pastimes! The story will follow a gang of young girls who have escaped their sugar coated lives of Barbie dolls and cupcakes in exchange for a much more naughty existence!

So my website is finally finished and I'm quite happy with how it turned out, it needs a little tweaking here and there but for the most part its good to go! I couldn't have done it without the help of my amazing bud Mr.Curry!!! Without you my, website would be non existent! THANKS!

ps I'm still going to be using my blog as a virtual sketchbook so don't think I'm going anywhere!

spring fever

Here are a few more pieces for my thesis. I feel like I'm finally getting into the swing of things (6 months in!) now I just have to work like mad until may! Both of these guys are done in graphite, scanned and digitally coloured. Both pieces continue with my theme of nature and sexuality. The first image is of a group of girls playing a naughty version of leap frog (the cats tails disappear up their skirts). The second image is of a girl who has gotten herself into quite a bind with some frisky vines.

pre school problems

another messy little doodle

a snow filled dressup box

Here are a few shots from a recent photo shoot I styled. My amazing friend Zoe Fox was behind the lens and the pretty girl I got to play dress up with is my friend Tash! It was a fun way to spend a lovely afternoon and I cant wait to see how the photos turn out!

spring time premonitions

I've been playing around with some old self portraits in photo shop lately and have been having quite a lot of fun...I think these would look awesome as screen prints so I should really get on learning how to!

a lonely world, the strangers paradise

Here are a few shots from various photo shoots I've done with my very talented boyfriend Felix Kalmenson! The first two are from the most resent shoot we did where I am some sort of turn of the century prostitute running around in the back fields of a train station. The last is from an installation I made during the summer where I created a 1950's boudoir in the laundry room. You can see more of his work and our photographic collaborations on his Flickr page ... go check it out!
