When Ravens Appear, Magic Is Imminent
Ravens have inspired artists and various cultures throughout time. Ravens symbolize metamorphosis, change, or transformation, and are believed to help people find answers to thoughts that they are unable to face. The Raven is about rebirth, recovery, renewal, recycling, reflection and healing. They signify moving through transitions smoothly by casting light in the darkness. The ravens in my paintings catch and reflect the light from nature and symbolize the regrowth of community.

Public Art Installations
Home Sweet Home
Conceived, built, and installed in partnership with Erin Stinson / Studio Stinson, this 16'x12'x5' sculpture was created as a temporary public art installation to be displayed as part of igNIGHT Art Illuminated 2017.
Utilizing Canada’s beloved symbol, the beaver, speaks to Canadian culture, our vast natural landscape, and our people. Beavers are industrious creatures that believe in community: mating for life; staying with the same community of beavers for years; keeping their young with them for the first several years of their life; and providing shelter for many different creatures during the winter season. This community of teamwork and sharing echoes some of the values that represent Canada, our Home Sweet Home.
Our design brought this scene of home right into the heart of Jubilee Plaza, using assemblage and sculpture to build a replica of a beaver family at work on their lodge. A more natural look during the day and a glowing version at night, lit from within. Eight interpretive light boxes surrounded the platform and displayed fun facts about beavers and illustrations that I created for each. (These may be viewed under the illustrations tab.)
The beaver has been Canada’s official animal since 1975, although it has held cultural and historical significance for much longer. All across Canada, in a variety of landscapes, beavers build their lodges and dams – marvellous environmental engineers! What is believed to be the largest beaver dam in the world, thought to have been under construction since the 1970’s, was discovered in Wood Buffalo National Park in 2007.

A deconstructed version of Home Sweet Home, installed for the 2017 Keyano Gala, Fort McMurray, AB.
I Love Lucy
This fox sculpture is installed on the Total Aboriginal Interpretive Trail at MacDonald Island Park, Fort McMurray, AB.
I used the story of a three-legged fox that frequented the MacDonald Island Golf Course in the 1970s as my inspiration. Despite being infamous for stealing golf balls, Lucy as she came to be called, was very popular with the locals.
Dressing Lucy in golfing attire seemed fitting, tying together nature and leisure, two things synonymous with the area where she is installed.
Variety of images created in a variety of media for a variety of reasons.
