23 year old graduate from OCAD University and Bonnie Gordon College of Confectionary Arts. Currently studying Graphic Design for Print and Web at Humber College.
This blog is about illustration, collage, drawing, and the occasional instagram selfie.
I also run a pastry blog at pastelmacaron.tumblr.com!

im collaborating with my dad to create some awesome new work! he works as a painter for a architectural modelmaking company, and makes some amazing quick abstract art from scrap pieces of board and other things at work, layering textures and utilizing some wicked spray paint effects. In this collaboration, he will be providing a backdrop for the figures that I paint. I am very excited, because I have always wanted to integrate the background of paintings in some sort of interesting way.

I’m always really critical of my work, so sometimes it gets to a point where I just can’t stand looking at it. Sometimes scanning in illustrations and reworking them can leave them looking entirely different, especially colourwise. I was cleaning my room and came across a few original images, and realized that the scanned version really doesn’t do it justice. Sometimes its nice to rework old drawings instead of starting up something new, I find it very relaxing. Here’s a quick rescanning of an older illustration I made back in December. I think I like this one better!
