This is the beginning of a new series of works I have been incubating. Time spent in the mountains is keeping my awareness of the spiritual and the symbolic nature in everything abound. Playing in the backyard is a required conduit.
‘REPURPOSE’ -An art show made from pre-loved material, is hoping to influence and encourage a sustainable world and assist our community whilst making some cool shit. I had fun with this one.
‘Repurpose’ has been curated by my friend Greg Cutten of the Re-Build It Centre in Function Junction, Whistler B.C. An artist himself with a passion for sustainable art, he has put together a collection of artists who have repurposed everyday materials into some very offbeat, ingenious and lovely artworks. I have posted just a few images of what is on the gallery walls, some very cool execution of material and subject matter. I am a proud participant as I have woven this concept through my life and art practice. The show is a silent auction format at the gallery, anyone can bid on the artwork with 50% of proceeds will be going to support the Whistler Community Services Society Check out the article written about the show here in the Pique News Magazine
Happening now in Whistler, B.C. and running until April 22 2015

Thank you for visiting my Blog site.
I designed and created this light box illumination series when I was living in Vancouver. Wood, glass, light, photographs.
I love this concept, What a fantastic way to use empty spaces, stimulate and create that surprise factor for passers-by while promoting the arts and artists. Adds flavour to any city block.Win. Win.
I have previously posted about a countertop material called Ice stone, a cradle to cradle post consumer /post industrial product that I was thinking of using for my virtual kitchen renovation. I have found this awesome article written by Michelle Jeresek, co-owner of ‘Departure’: architecture planning interiors. She has comprised fabulous grouping of other options for healthy living and the conscious minded. Love it!
I just chose this very cool material for my virtual kitchen renovation. 100% recycled glass cradle to cradle certification, a product that fosters a sustainable environment. Keeping it clean and conscious with a wonderful palette to choose from.
