Home

Recently went back to my home town to visit my family, and take some photo’s of the farm house where i spent a few of my formidable years. Though it is currently empty and falling apart, this house still holds so many clear and present memories.

Process

I was down at my studio the other night, working on a monochromatic watercolour in Ochre Yellow. So far it’s looking great. I have 2 more steps to apply before it’s done, so I’m posting some pics from the process of putting it together.

Watercolour Painting

Yesterday I was down at my studio, trying out some new watercolour combos, and I’m happy with the results of my experimenting. It was a great afternoon down at the studio, and a nice way to spend my day off.

 

Preserves

Recently I spent the afternoon with Bren and collected footage of him canning in his kitchen, making curried apple chutney. I’m always interested in the process, and how things come to fruition, so this seemed like an ideal collaboration. I love working with people that I know, there is something so relaxed about the creative process, and the end result with Bren turned out better than I expected.

8 Years Later

Some screen shots from a film I finished entitled “8 Years Later”. I’m so happy with how it turned out. I submitted the film, and it’s been accepted, for distribution through Video Pool, a media arts center here in Winnipeg.

Synopsis:  An experimental documentary that abstracts the roads I travel on a daily basis. Tracking shots are layered on each other, turning documented images into a disorientating visual memory. Real audio from the tracking shots, contrast the layered images, disrupting the visual collage.

 

Studio

In Summer 2015, I took over a studio space in Winnipeg’s iconic Exchange District. Located at 75 Albert Street in Winnipeg Manitoba, it really is a fantastic location, the view out of my windows is beautiful, and having the constant hum of downtown around me is golden. It’s been a great space that is inspiring, and gives me room to be creative. From writing to painting, my work is done within my studio walls. I am lucky to have this space, and i’m super excited for all the work i will be producing out of the studio this year.

Art

While film is my primary medium, painting is my oldest. Starting when I was young, I mentored under my mom, Vivian Paschke, an established rural Manitoban artist.  I work with a variety of materials, but I tend to gravitate towards watercolors and acrylic.
