Eye to Eye
Public Art at the Sheldon Chumir Health Centre
This City of Calgary public art project was intended to create understanding between the people outside of the Chumir and the people inside the Chumir, so they can see "Eye to Eye". This was accomplished by setting up an art studio in the lobby and drawing portraits of clients, staff, or anyone involved with the Sheldon Chumir Health Centre.
By drawing only the eyes people were able to remain anonymous, but mostly, the eyes are the windows to the soul. After the portraits were completed, the people I drew were asked to add something, becoming part of the making of the art.
City of Calgary Utility Boxes
This project was lead by Alberta Printmakers and Eveline Kolijn. 12 printmakers combined their talents to create relief prints and silkscreens that adorn the utility boxes along 5th and 6th Avenues between 4th Street and 10th Street downtown Calgary.
This project was a collaboration of 12 authors and 12 printmakers. The goal was to have art and literature meet to create inspired relationships. This collection of artist’s books is a permanent exhibit at the Calgary Central Library. My authur partner was Susan Calder and I interpeted her book entitled "When a Warm Wind Blows off the Mountains"

Vivid Mural 2022 at AUArts
This mural was completed recently. The theme provided for this call to AUArts alumni
artists was "Changing Perceptions". The theme is realized through optical illusions, patterns and
the intense stare of a pair of eyes. As people pass by and look into the mural, the eyes look back
out of the mural at the viewer; changing perceptions.
