Youth Photo Programs

View on Instagram
I love, love, love leading youth photography programs. My favourite part of any program is taking photo walks through the neighbourhood and putting all of the stuff we’ve been learning in the classroom to work! Thanks @vibeartsto for the opportunity to work with these wonderful young image makers. 🖤📷🏙#ilovemyjob #artsed #photography #phototeacher #torontoart

Looking back as we spring forward

It’s been a busy fall and winter but as I prepare to spring forward into a new term, I am throughly enjoying the experience of sifting through the accumulated images from the last six months. I’ll be making an effort to post some of the backlog here soon. For now, here’s a shot of me and Rheni Tauchid in October looking fabulous alongside the work we produced during our residency in China.

Photography at Avenue Road Arts School

One of my favourite parts of teaching is seeing the amazing work produced in my classes at the end of the term. Here’s a gorgeous piece by @425joanna from my Advanced Digital Photography program for adults at @avenueroadartsschool. Registration for the Winter term is happening now! Join us! #art #toronto #photography #artsed #photographyteacher #teacherpride

Follow me and @solarflare22 at @lostandfoundmuseums for more lost and found acquisitions. ______________________________________#Repost @lostandfoundmuseums with @get_repost

My temporary studio in China

My temporary studio in China was in a former market building and I occupied one of the stalls where they once sold warm soy milk, and scallion pancakes. My studio mate was a massive wooden sculpture of (what I think is) Hotei, the laughing Buddhist monk, carved from an enormous burly trunk. He did his best to keep me smiling throughout the trip. Seen here are some images of the studio building (which I also shared with 7 others) as well as some details and the lovely view outside my little window. #artistresidency #china #travelphotography #art #canadianartist

Returned home this weekend from a two week artist’s residency and exhibition in Anhui Province, China with over 40 other artists from around the world. So grateful for this incredible opportunity, I hope that through my images I can do at least a teeny bit of justice to the intensity of the landscape and warmth of the people I met along the way. Thank you Taohuatan and @triart.mfg for your immense generosity. 🏔🇨🇳🐉💚#chinaorbust #artistresidency #art #china #photography #travel #canadianartist (at Taohua, Anhui, China)
