"To some, Tinker Tunk is just a pile of junk with crooked teeth and scraggly hair, a wrinkled back and a 3-eyed stare. "it's made out of gump, and it lives in the dump!" But don't be a glug - give it a hug! And a kiss on its cheeks love is all it seeks. Don't you see? Tinker-Tunk is just like You and Me!"
Mini-sculpture of Lamont, the amazing artist and inspiration behind Accessible Art, an adaptive art program for disabled youth. Lamont has cerebral palsy and is severely physically disabled, but is a true hero with lots of heart and love.
Pillbox hat depicting the “left” and the “right” side of the brain. Inspired by Daniel Pink’s novel, A Whole New Mind, which uses the brain as a metophor for different types of thinking.

My Urban Garden
Given a blank skate deck to decorate. Interactive paper garden; forms can be moved around with magnets. Rattles are inside the forms, adding a musical element. Adding joy and colour to an otherwise grey city.
Painted Paper Mache, Yarn, Fabric, on Skatedeck.
The Most Stupendous Machine in the World
Miniature set for a Children’s Book I wrote. Two kids accidentally invent a machine that sends them to space.
Sculpey, Found Objects.
Monster friends of various sorts. Sculpey.
Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, I created my own imaginative city. This collection is inspired by clothing that would inhabit this whimsical land.
“Onerique is a floating city. Its landscape is made of lost balloons that have escaped the tight grasp of a child’s palm. Free, balloons wander the earth, collecting other items that have been discarded from childhood - a stuffed toy, a dear diary, a first love. Eventually, like all lost wanderers, balloons will eventually find home. Home in the colourful, floating abyss that is Onerique.”
