In partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and BMW Canada, I was commissioned in 2014 to create a series of prints for a charity auction. I was given a BMW for a day to create images with -- specifically, to create images using the reflections on the car, or the car reflected in our environment. The prints were auctioned off to benefit the Air Canada Foundation.

The Building Project showcases two historic, inner-city Calgary apartment complexes and the vibrant community of artists that exists within them.
Portraits of individual tenants and photographs of the 100-year-old buildings were published into an 80-page hardcover book, alongside historical writings by author and historian T.M. Christison .
The Building Project was funded in-part by the Calgary Arts Development and the City of Calgary and was nominated for a Lion Award in 2010 for excellence in community heritage awareness. The Building Project books are available for sale through this website. Please contact me for further information.
Documentation of the abandoned wing of Calgary’s fourth oldest school, King Edward, as re-imagined by 30+ Artists prior to demolition.
Through a series of large-scale artworks, PHANTOM WING explores the soon to be demolished 1960s wing of the historic school, before it's redeveloped as a multidisciplinary arts hub (cSPACE). A community of artists and performers have taken up temporary residence within the abandoned wing, creating infestations, fire-bell installations, psychedelic portals, Girl Gang Dance Parties, intercom performances, water-features, poltergeists, and more.
