Here’s another 5 Second Day vid I worked on! The employees of Titmouse Animation look forward to 5 Second Day every year, a day where they stop working on production to create their own short films for the day. There are only 2 rules: it has to be original content and it has to be at least 5 seconds long! The rest is up to the artist! My band, The Damps, were happy to be involved this year, and be immortalized as dolls(and fuzzy muppet hands) in a stop motion short/music vid! Not only were we “starring” in the film, but 2 of us were also part of the production and animation team. Thanks to everyone who helped out, especially Rich, who, with Travis and I, put sweat and tears into it, and worked till the wee hours to get this film done in time. And so, without further adieu, here is “Jammin’ With The Damps” followed by the Making-Of video! Enjoy!
I took a course. Here I am talking about it! Thanks to artist, Ten Hundred for being a sweet instructor and to Learn Monthly for providing us with the platform to learn, create and to connect with other artists.
In August 2017, I was asked to paint a mural on the side of the building that is home to Vancouver’s Coalition Skin, The Pxssy Shop (a hair waxing salon and shop)! With vehicles squeezing through the alley, people stopping to chat and watch me paint and constantly trying to dodge pigeon poop, I paint “Pick-A-Boo” with the help of a few friends.

Two Vancouver artists(Jenn “Slingshot” Brisson and Phresha) have recently joined forces to become Galactikitty, a travelling art duo collaborating on surreal and fanciful artworks and murals. Here is their first art travelling adventure, painting a 500 square foot mural on the walls of a soon-to-be restaurant in the heart of Brooklyn, NY.

“Puertas” (“Doors”), a 13 Feet Off The Ground art show, opened Feb 8th, 2019 at Pez Gordo Gallery in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. Nine of the twelve Vancouver artists, headed to stay at residency, Casa Galeria for one week where they each painted a wooden door, went sight seeing and took in the vibrant surroundings before their art show opening. In this video, you will see each artist’s painting process and final “puerta” for the show, as well as the fun moments shared by the group, continuing their bond which started in 2017, when they all headed to Sicily to paint murals for a month in the small town of Graniti.

My kitty is 20 years old. I love her. She is old, but I still sing to her as if she’s my little baby. She may or may not like this. Here she is anyways starring in her own film called “Lullaby For My Fur Baby”. The song is the actual song I sing to her. I did this for this year’s 5 Second Day at Titmouse Animation Canada. Enjoy! Music by ME!
Here is 13 Feet Off The Ground‘s first collaborative mural since being back from our mural residency at Graniti Murales in Sicily. We worked hard on it, but had so much fun and finished it just in time for the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver. We’d love to thank Ambleside and Dundarave BIA for the opportunity and to Inn Cogneato Bistro, for allowing us to paint the side of their business with our colourful art. Music is featuring the talented Chersea, with her beautiful song, “You Caught My Eye”. Title of this mural is “Sweet Harmony” and was designed by 13FOTG member Morgane Billault. We all did our part under the management of our fearless Team Leader, Sheree Jones, with help from our planning team, consisting of Carol McQuaid, Melanie Ellery and of course, Morgane, who’s design was perfect for the job 🙂 What’s next for us? Follow us on IG or on our website for upcoming shows, events, talks and possibly… another trip!
It’s that time again for Titmouse Animation‘s 5 Second Day screening! This year I joined forces with 3 other animators (Melissa Delamar, Richard Talmey and Keith Wilson) and created a stop-motion short as a tribute to 80’s toy commercials. I bring you, “Mega Mutant Mashbots” …each sold separately.
13 Feet off the Ground is a collective of established female artists based in Vancouver, Canada. We came together through an opportunity to participate in a residency program, ‘Graniti Murales‘, in Graniti, Sicily, where we stayed for 4 weeks in the Fall of 2017. During this time, we created contemporary murals and one installation for this ancient village, as well as create a lifelong bond with each other we only hope will strengthen over time. This video is just a glimpse of what our adventure was like during our trip. We hope the immense love and community we felt in Graniti, is captured here. We believe that the work of our first residency in Graniti opens opportunity, at an international level, for future dialogue around our roles as female artists.
Thank you to everyone who shared their video footage and contributed to the making of this video. Thank you to our hosts in Graniti and to all the new friends we made along our journey.

My second ‘5 Second Day’ film with Titmouse Animation Vancouver!
I have 7 videos all together showing the entire process of the mural painting and installation! The music I used are all from friends here, in Vancouver and I had a lot of fun wearing different hats and costumes for it. Please head to my YouTube Channel to watch them all! Here are 2 of my faves including the last one, from the installation day! Enjoy!
SOOOOO much has happened this year! 2015 has been so FULL of amazing surprises! And to end off the year, THIS happened!! Recently I completed a survey from car2Go and one of the questions was, “If you could do something special for someone you love, what would it be?” I answered and I was super thrilled and excited to find out that I got chosen to make my wish come true! Here is the video to prove it! Haha. Try not to cry! Thanks car2Go for the opportunity to take my dad on an adventure for the day. Enjoy 🙂
Here is my promo for CBC’s newest TV show, “Crash Gallery“! My episode is the 5th one and the Season Finale, which airs Oct 30th at 8:30pm on CBC! You can watch it on the website after it airs, as well as all the other episodes and the promos for all the artists!
Also… I am working on an 8×54 feet mural that will be installed Downtown Vancouver on Hastings West at Granville! It is designed and painted by me in partnership with the Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) and the businesses of Hastings West. The work is being done in my studio at the William Clark Studios in East Vancouver, BC.
Here’s the film I did for 5 Second Day! It’s when Titmouse Animation gives their employees the day to work on their own films, as long as they are at least 5 seconds long. Well, here’s what I was able to get done in time. Enjoy!
Again… not a fan of watching and hearing myself on videos… But here’s the video that the team at RAW did for me from the RAW Vancouver show that happened Jan 8th, 2015. Thanks guys!
Here’s a little snippet of me at The Fall Gallery‘s “Toy Show” back in fall/winter 2010 (AGES AGO!). I show up around 2:26… Man, I do NOT like watching myself!
