PERMANENT INSTALLATION ON BEE HOUSES

I am so excited to be part of this project:

HONEY, HIVES & HOUSES 
APIVERTE builds EZHouses on host properties featuring the works of local artists. Our goal is to propagate and protect the honey bees – while also pollinating the surrounding environment. We sell personalized CSA-style honey shares to individuals and regional businesses. Our honey is small batch, craft, personally branded and geo-located to its harvest area. We also conduct research and development activities on bee health and habitat throughout the calendar year. (https://apiverte.ca/)

My work will be located on a bee house at Juniper farm, in Wakefield, QC. I have about a month to complete one of the panels for the house. And the house is planned to be up in Mid-May (weather permitting for the honey bees). Stay tuned for details

 

Illumnaata “All Together”

Ottawa School of Art’s Community Mural Celebration

Illunaata, meaning “all together” in Inuktituk, is a celebration of Canadian imagery and community through the medium of paint. To mark this momentous year, The Ottawa School of Art (OSA) partnered with Ottawa 2017, Ottawa Community Housing (OCH), and the Embassy of Imagination (EOI) to create a series of murals that are universally accessible, promote diversity, respect, positivity, and speak to OSA’s motto, “Teaching Art to everyone” by sharing art with everyone!

I was so honoured to be asked to lead one of the murals for this project. Thank-you to my assistant, Jasmine, and to the youth from the neighborhood for all your hard work in helping me paint this wall. A special thanks to the Ottawa School of Art and the Lowertown community for giving me this opportunity and to my partner in crime for helping me paint, carry, and push my scaffolding around!

Thank-you to friends, family, and community members and representatives for coming to the unveiling, I had a wonderful time! …And for the cake, the cake was delicious 😛
