What ‘hood are you in?
South Calgary is where I’ve lived whole life! I drive all over town for clients and love all the different areas of this great city, just not travelling during rush hour! Grew up in Woodbine and I new reside in Southwood.
What do you do?
I’m an artist who specializes in visual communication, art for people and spaces! Clients will find me to brighten up an area and bring a human, personal touch to their walls or signs. I also love to entertain at special events! I do live painting with the work often being given away or auctioned off, as well as live caricature drawings
What are you currently working on?
Yesterday I just completed an in-home mural for a family, upcoming projects include working with a local hotel for some Calligraphic Quotes in their lobby and spaces, Murals for a senior living centre, custom cosmetic/fragrance painting for a bunch of dates for Holt Renfrew during the holiday season, among other projects. I’m looking forward to heading to Arizona for about 5 days for the second year in a row, for the Tempe Festival of the Arts! I’m doing a custom 10’x10′ pavement chalk art piece along with other amazing artists.
Where can we find your work?
I’m all over town! My projects are typically done on a custom basis developed onsite for clients or on chalkboards, signs or canvases in my studio.
