Oil Pastel Jacket

Posted: March 21st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: Art | Tags: , , , | 1 Comment »

This may be my favorite piece from high school (other than the dress!). It was my first true attempt at realism in grade ten (I think) as a take-home art project. We were assigned to do a jacket and I chose my mother’s sheepskin one. Since then, oil pastel has become my favorite medium that I never work in. ;)

I got to put my Gorilla Tripod to use and took this picture at an italian restaurant in PV called Mezzogiorno (that place had a great atmosphere!).  I always love the effect a long exposure gives to a photo!


From the Sketchbook…

Here’s the sketch of an album cover I designed in 2008. I was so grateful for the opportunity to do this for the Surani family who wrote and produced the songs on The Golden Jublee Project! The album was fantastic and I feel lucky to had been a part of it.

Dress for Dubai

In 2007, Hailey (my partner and model in the picture above) and I worked on a dress made out of paper that reflected the city of Dubai. It was very ‘Project Runway’ of our art class, although we took months, not days, to make it work ;) . Of course, the details and attachments are made from other things like eyelets, ribbon, tulle, hundreds of tiny brads, string, small beads, and my favorite: shattered glass!

Let me know if you’d like to see more :D !



Shangri-la

A water element in the lobby of the Shangri-la hotel in Boracay. That place was definitely paradise, so quiet and so beautiful! Taken in June 2009.

Last summer I got the chance to visit China and the Philippines with my family! This photo was taken on a small island called Boracay (about an hour from Manila) in June 2009.


An old fairy tale comes to life!

I recently rediscovered The Steadfast Tin Soldier and thought I’d bring it to life. Thanks to the word (used bookstore very close to my apartment in Montreal), I found the perfect ‘beat up’ book for only 1$!
