Stipple, drawing, black and white, art commission
This is a drawing I started about 5 years ago of my great grandmother, Virginia. It is made up of tiny dots meticulously drawn by hand. 

 Close up detail photos in progress of the dots that make up the drawing.


This is an oil painting I did based on a photograph taken by Brandon Stanton. I was so captivated by this woman's beauty that I had to paint it. It was a wonderful change of pace for me to work with bright colours

Two-hour Art Battle Painting #2

My grandpa was a bomber pilot in WW2, and I came across this photograph he took of a plane he flew. I decided to paint it in acrylics at last night's art rumble.

Two-hour Art Battle Painting

Acrylic painting, art battle, Rumble House, black and white, statue
There is a wonderful place in Calgary Alberta called the Rumble House. It's an art venue that hosts weekly art rumbles and figure drawing nights. I did this painting at my first ever art rumble, where everyone had two hours to paint something to be auctioned off at the end of the night. I went against my usual stubborn oil paint ways and painted this with acrylics.

Old Family Photo Restoration

Old family photograph, restoration, painting, oil painting, mother son, art, commission

I received this tiny old photo booth picture to paint that was taken about 50 years ago. The edges are falling apart, there are wrinkles through the image, and it is generally falling apart. My client wanted the photo restored but couldn't find a place that would do it, so they came to me to paint and remake it.
