I am fortunate to have my art in the company of several brilliant professional children's book illustrators at an art exhibit at Humber College Lakeshore Campus. The show is on until October 17 when there is a closing reception. Should be fun, so sorry I will be out of town:( These are my submissions to the exhibition from two recent picture books. Details about the exhibition can be found below.
Capturing Imagination: The Art of Storytelling

Brenda Clark, Michael Martchenko, Barbara Reid, Werner Zimmermann and many others have work in the show. The artworks in the show include preliminary sketches for a behind-the-scenes look at the creative process. Text with each piece provides the artist’s perspectives on their medium, their creative process and their art training, as well as a list of some of their favourite children’s book illustrators.
A sketch book is on hand for visitors to create their own drawings. Visitors can also do a short survey about their own favourite children’s books.
I am an illustrator with many years of experience in publishing, editorial, advertising and corporate. My illustration technique is linocut, printed and scanned with color applied in Photoshop. I love mixing old school and digital technologies and now am learning to paint in oils and with a wacom tablet. I'll post my learning curve here. Variety, the spice of life!
