Algonquin Park Poster
Algonquin Park Poster

Illustrated and art directed - by me! A project done for Greg Worsnop, to benefit the Friends of Algonquin Park (FOAP) - a non-profit charity that dedicates their resources to develop current and future stewards of Algonquin Park.

I had numerous ideas for this project - but this is the one that summed up a few key points about Algonquin; it's history of fur trading, the variety of people that visit the park, the beauty of the fall trees, their reflections in the water - and canoeing.

24 x 36 inches

UPDATE: For those of you that wanted to buy this 24 x 36" poster, the @friendsofalgonquin park will take orders and ship over the phone. Call the bookstore at the Visitor Centre, 613-637-2828, to order rolled copies. $9.95 for the poster, plus $25 for tube and shipping within Canada.

Fireweed
Fireweed

Self-promotion based on the novel, The Winter Vault by Anne Michaels.

Life, death, water, earth, love, grief… Cycles. A novel written with such poetry that I couldn’t shake it. I didn’t have a plan beforehand, I just started painting. The flower is fireweed, a native plant that grows after a forest fire, when everything has burnt to the ground… I thought it was suitable to the main character, Jean, thrown into grief after the death of her unborn child, her recovery and to the story overall.
