Design / brands / websites / illustration

As a designer with an Hons. Bachelor of Design and eight years of working experience I have designed brands, logos, advertisements, websites, annual reports for clients like the City of Ottawa, for The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA), Chevrolet, Food Basics, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC).

My illustration work which has been featured in the Ottawa arts magazine Ottawater, the Toronto-based poetry magazine Misunderstandings and the covers of small press poetry books. Using images in the public domain as my starting place, my illustrations explore the effects and aesthetics of new media on our public storehouse of digitized visual history. By using the universal software commands of cut, copy, and paste in both a digital and analog sense, the collages I create expose the naturalized aesthetics of display by transmediating residual patterns.
