Happy Year of the Pig!

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, I created this illustration using my traditional linocut technique and the app, ProCreate, on my ipad.
Wishing everyone a year of peace, joy and prosperity!

I Love Folktales!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was a great pleasure to illustrate the story, The Tiger Son, for the January 2019 issue of Cricket Magazine. Over the years I have created art depicting many folktales, myths and legends from around the world. This tale by Sue Cowing is the re-telling of a Chinese folktale about a tiger who accepts responsibility for an old woman whose son he has eaten. My art is hand-carved linocut with digital colour.

Theatrical!

Carousel Players, a theatre company for young people, commissioned me to create art for their 2018/2019 season. In addition to a new adaptation of Peter Pan by Fiona Sauder and Reanne Spitzer, Carousel is staging, Whole World by Sean Dixon, and The Incredible Adventures of Mary Jane Mosquito by Tomson Highway. Fifth House/Fitzhenry & Whiteside invited me to illustrate the picture book version of Tomson Highway’s wonderful play, and it is a pleasure to see it staged by Carousel Players!
