This design was created after hearing the news of graves discovered at residential schools across the country. I didn't plan on making shirts using this graphic... it was created as a personal healing exercise, but after the response on social media and discussions with The Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford, the Black Shirt is now available for purchase. $20 from every shirt will go directly to Woodland Cultural Centre's - Save The Evidence Campaign. My Grandmother was a residential school survivor and I can’t think of a better way to honour her and the rest of the children than by Saving the Evidence.

You can purchase your shirt at Folker.ca

Some mark making on this 5’x5’ mixed media panel.  I’m really pleased with the textures in this piece. I hope to finish up and post some photos on the weekend.

I just picked up over 100 tobacco baggies from an old friend. Big plans for these beauties. The colour and textures are incredible. So many hours of work in the sandy soil, hot sun and the rain. There are stories to be told here.... I’ll do my best to do them justice. Stop by my studio during @lightupthelanepd to see where this journey takes me.

Last Tuesday I had the honour of talking with a group of amazing grade 4 students from Mrs Mascarenhas class at Our Lady of the Assumption CES in Hannon ON. We talked about achieving dreams and overcoming obstacles. How being different is good. Best of all, we created some wonderful art! Thank you DVSA for providing me with the opportunity to make so many new friends. 🙏

I saw this painting today for the first time since 2002. I forgot I painted it but once I saw it, it was like seeing an old friend. There’s a piece of us in everything we create. 4’x4’ mixed media, resin, cheesecloth, rivets and staples on plywood.
