Collaborated with Grainbin on a mural project "BONKERS" as part of Street Meet public art festival (2017). It was a mix of spray-paint and wheat pasted pattern.
our mural project spilled off the wall into the surrounding neighborhood.
In 2015 BAM artist collective built a room inside of our gallery space as part of Nuit Blanche. Rather than art on the walls we constructed artworks and performances inside the walls. Guests were engaged by viewing the 20 varied works through small peepholes cut into the walls.
one of the peepholes that I designed. Hand drawn patterns on foam-core.
in January 2016 I was an artist in residence in the project space at Aka Artist Run Centre, Saskatoon. I made the space into a mad workshop filled with in-process artworks, materials and an all-over patterned mural.
BAM artist collective conducted a project / social experiment with guests of the Mendel Art Gallery's Lugo Gala. Guests were numbered, and invited to write a letter to an anonymous person. Once finished, they became a messenger to deliver someone else's letter the person with corresponding number. Strange and exciting social interactions developed between guests delivering, receiving and penning letters to one another.
I curated a show "Wild and Free" with artist Jon Vaughn, Grainbin, Devon Hanofski, Mike Handson, Jordan Danchilla, and myself at BAM Gallery space. Artist played their work off each others in this space to create new discussions between work.

Was part of Cynthia Blanchette's "Foresight" exhibition featuring artists Cynthia Blanchette, Diana Chisholm, Alexa Hainsworth and myself. I painted traffic cones, barricades, caution signs and roof details.

in 2016 I collaborated with analogue video artist, Colby Richardson, as part of "Immersive Spaces" exhibition at AKA Artist Run Centre. Part video, part painting these pieces mimicked both artists work with a trompe l'oeil effect.
BAM went corporate when the Remai Modern asked the artist collective to do something for their live program series Turnout. BAM...is becoming is a tongue in cheek artist version of a corporate retreat complete with a CEO powerpoint, growth charts, icebreakers, personality tests, group challenges, breakout brainstorming sessions and cake!
