Arlington Bridge

Took my bike and camera and went for a ride the other day. The afternoon was blustery, overcast and kind of perfect. The city looked beautiful. Ended up on the Arlington Bridge, a classic design with a beautiful view of the downtown. Snapped some pics and video and really love the results.

Winnipeg Art Gallery

Spent part of my afternoon at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, checking out the current exhibit “In Place: Reflections of Manitoba”. The space is undergoing some massive renovations in the midst of the pandemic so the exhibit space is limited, but SO well done. I snapped some pics while I was there and wanted to share them.

Creativity is like a well and sometimes it can run dry. I’ve had that feeling so many times…but getting out of my routine, checking out local art and taking pictures was the best way to reenergize my inner artist and fill the creative well back up.

Studio time

I was at my studio on Sunday organizing and cataloging some of my work, and I couldn’t resist taking a few pics with my new Canon DSLR. I can remotely connect it to my phone, hence the pic of me holding my phone. I always enjoy being in my creative space, it’s energizing with all the sunshine and it’s fun to look back through my collection of art. Hope everyone is having a good start to your week.

Downtown Mood

Something so moody about the city after a rainfall, especially in black and white. A bit unusual since it’s January but we will take it. It will be snow and -35 soon enough.

The way the street glistens with all the light reflecting, I love it.
Lights on lights on lights, amplified by the rain.

Sovereign Intimacies

I’ve been spending some time at the Plug In art gallery, collecting footage and working with the curators of this amazing gallery installation “ Sovereign Intimacies”. Such a beautiful show, the artwork is incredible. Here’s a few snap shots from the other day.

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.

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.
