I am a Graphic Artist & Art Educator…

… Working with groups, organizations and peers to develop collaborative works that support and connect art with the greater community.

For the past 12+ Years I’ve been a Teacher at KCI in Kitchener, Ontario. There I have developed programming for both Photography & Graphic Design and led projects that connect students to real organizations and opportunities.

Outside of the formal education system I’ve worked with youth, artists and organizations in the creation of collaborative art projects including:

2016 – Imagine A Show: A Celebration of Youth Photography

2015 – Pan Am Games Mural: Collaborative Mural for Milton Velodrome

2014 – #BellLetsTalk Mural: Grand River Hospital project for #ClarasBigRide

When not working on collaborative projects my personal work explores texture and story telling with a medley of traditional & digital media. And my background in design (Project Management & Conceptual Designer) allows me to offer custom visual solutions to those looking for something unique. A few recent pieces include:

A 365 Day Art Challenge that had me exploring a number of different themes, media and techniques.

A Design for Boost for Kids supporting the International #RedSandsProject as it coordinates support and brings awareness to child abuse.

A Collaborative Photography Piece that documents and tells the story of the Ontario Landscape through the lens of two different photographers.

In all that I do I am excited by synergy and collaborative efforts that are inclusive and provide unique opportunities to celebrate art, artists and organizations.

I am always open to discuss new and exciting projects. If you think I can help, please contact me through social media @KWPanda or email. I look forward to hearing from you!
