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 ...

Sweet Somethings

Here's another piece for my thesis that deals with the parallels between talking to your plants and dirty talk. Many gardeners believe that talking to your plants stimulates growth and keeps the plant healthy. My piece shows a character whispering into a flower while the flower responds with excitement.

late bloomers, early risers

This past weekend I took part in a local art fair called Zine Dream! It was lots of fun, despite the lack of sleep I was running on. Late Bloomers is the new zine I made for Zine Dream. It depicts Victorianesque children in the early years of adolescence which are often awkward and isolating. They represent the years in which you are attempting to discover yourself and the constant conflict you experience. Those silver lid things are magnets I made for the show and I also included a picture of my studio wall which Ive begun using as a inspiration bulletin board! That's all for now I think....

OH expect for the fact that thesis is less then a week away!!!! AHHH OMG WOWW ok crunch time!

stuck together foreva

I'm going to be apart of an awesome zine fair at the end of the month called Zine Dream. If you're in the Toronto area on August 29th, come visit me and a group of over 50 talented Toronto artists at the Tranzac! Below are a few pieces I've been working on for a zine I'm putting together for the fair. I'm excited to see how it all comes together and can't wait to see what kind of beautiful treasures I'm sure to find at Zine Dream!

all tied up

I've got SO MUCH updating to do my computer should take me for dinner and a movie...

These photos are from an installation I did in the Music Gardens near the Harbour Front. It was part of a piece I did for a show at Gallery 1313 called Today is Yesterday's Tomorrow involving nostalgia and childhood memories. I'll post more photos from the show asap!
