What neighborhood do you live in?
Hastings Sunrise, I love seeing ships in the harbour every morning and the crows flying home at night.
What do you do and where?
I work part time as the Program Manager at Malaspina Printmakers; I love helping people make prints and putting together exhibitions and I get to work with a lot of great people. The rest of the time I work on my own work or go to the beach or the woods.
What are you working on?
Small paintings on photographs that I scan and blow up as large inkjet prints, a suite of photogravure prints of photos of cosmic rays from my cloud chambers, taking a part a Learjet and using the fuselage as plates to make prints, an encyclopedia of all of the nuclear tests detonated in the world ever and collecting rocks with my Nicole Vogelzang.
Where can we find your work?
In a recent show called “Sea Change” curated by Lucas Soi alongside works by Gaile Addison Sonja Ahlers, Bea Fremderman, Jessica Gnyp, Jeanette Hayes, Lili Huston-Herterich and Elizabeth Zvonar at the Lion’s Den at 79 Pender.
